This one time

This one time

A Poem by Alex Vandool

So, this one time, I turned a corner and everything was there. The answer to all questions, enlightenment supreme


I turned back later, took myself by surprise. The others were acting, none of it is real


It's tough when you see through the glorious end. A Goya-dark maelstrom bewitched all your friends


And love for the lovers, the cold, hollow fiends. They drag your soul lower, the longer you spend


With them and their doubles, the sad broken kind. Forgive them, they need you; to climb and survive


So, now you're beyond that, and you're still alive. The wonder's still winning, the light's still inside
