Lost In Translation

Misty waters whirl around,
Transparency is further dispelled,
All it took was transient contact,
Ripples and ripples, succeeding in cataleptic slumber-
Which were begun, by but a diminutive yearning,
Longing, that numbs the conscience.

And then, again, the same touch would awaken:
A thousand minds in rapid succession,
Unity in utter independence-
Where awareness brings hopeful venture;
One mind, must instigate,
One heart- must set them in action.

Energy in its eternal and pious concentration,
Passing through a coarse coexistence-
Saturating and disappearing,
Sometimes in distraught squander,
Where souls annihilate:
-In mirthful ignorance- usurped only by insanity.

This miasma, now overwhelms,
And clarity is involuntarily beckoned,
Seeking its connotation- in what it is not;
Realizing- reality would halt in absence of denial;
Questioners now question:
-Tearing all meaning apart.

Where is this planet?
Soaked in ludicrousness-
And somehow, still, ostensibly rational.
Where be my kin, I, even?
In relentless flurry-
Magical, still, limited and bound.

Lost in desire?
Lost in faith?
Lost in love?
Lost in hate?

Emotions, words:
People, worlds:

Lost, in translation…
