Abyss

Abyss

A is the birth of everything

The consciousness that guides our faith

The embers that breathe fire

But thoughts of the lone self are bound to develop

So to survive it needs a companion

A plus one

B is born

And breathes oxygen into the embers

To give it the confidence of a flame

And thoughts of trust

Thoughts that it accepts completely

Until it sees the shadows the flame creates

Why? B asks

Y emerges

And tells the flame it is a danger to mankind

The flame cowers and hates itself for what it is

Contaminated thoughts suffocate it faster than an extinguisher

Sound the alarm

Savior

S descends

From the heavens and resuscitates the flame

To tell it that it will grow to be fire

And a transfusion of thoughts tell the flame it is warmth, not destruction

The flame stands once again

And so does its shadow

S ascends

Growing alongside the fire

Telling it to live fast because oxygen doesn’t last

Acceptance of thoughts from the Devil’s angel

Leads the fire away from warmth

And into the shadow’s abyss
