tw !! implied death ... a place between knowledge and insanity ... the space between us

the place between us

There is a place between enlightenment

There is a place between enlightenment and insanity,

A sapphire ocean as hard as it looks,

Walking the lines of a minor-key melody of mystery and murder.

You will not be able to speak,

But the wind takes questions anyway;

Hoarding the answers like dragon's treasure.

This is the place where I learned to say

This is the place where I learned to say A simple two-letter word

This is the place where I learned to say A simple two-letter word That used to get caught on my tongue and wouldn't let go until it pierced a hole

This is the place where I learned to say A simple two-letter word That used to get caught on my tongue and wouldn't let go until it pierced a hole And stuck there, a diamond now.

There is no sea or sky,

There is no sea or sky, or perhaps,

That's all there is after all.

This is the place that the falling kids jump to.

It looks up from just below the balcony, calling out so convincingly,

It looks up from just below the balcony, calling out so convincingly, So close,

yet

yet one

yet one step

yet one step too

yet one step too f a r.

A modern Tantalus, as the dead have no use for knowledge.
