The Absence Of Illusion


Like glass it shattered

You saw it for what it had always been
splinters of the whole
and yet something more
was always present

Somehow you arrived here
beyond your reflection
resplendent
with the absence of illusion

Like glass it shattered
light traded places with darkness
in that moment
the simple pattern broke

To understand is to be understood
and you recognised
your long lost self in his smile
and then a glance became a gaze
