The “Yes!” we scream, whispers “No”

Greet the reaper as he reaps 
and weep because of the same
  This silly game
  We do this to ourselves
We’ve mapped out our whole mission
We sketched the whole thing out
  The plan for our destruction
The black hole that is you
  It will consume you
More, more is your mantra
 The only thing that will not go is “no”
Inject the pleasure
Digest the pain
Is it all a game?
You dance,
You dance to your own dirge

“Where are you?”

“Where are you?”
In the muck and mire.
“Where are you?”
Setting the world on fire.
Wrapped with the serpent.
Damning Eden.
Covering beauty in foliage and the land with shame.
“Where are you?”
I have yet to know.
It is dark. But I love it.
It is dark. I can hide.
(“Pleasures untold await”) I’ll just hide and hear “where are you?”
I’m in the muck and the mire. I’m in the filth I’ve created. I’ll stay here. I’ll wade in pain.
I’ll close my eyes. Shut up my mind. I’ll shut out any glimmer of grace and light.
Night, night; I’m free. Free to walk. Free to stumble. Free from the sun, from the light. O’ night!

“Where are you, Adam?”

“You were in Eden.”
