Truly, you only captured my mind…
merely ensnared it in deadly, silky threads
of logic and intellect.
Pulling it in closer,
even as you wrapped it tighter and tighter
in knowledge, and in love.
Leaving only the nerve center exposed,
as your words sank like fangs
into my bared ego.
And truth your venom,
racing through consciousness and synapse,
moments before excruciating pain.
Yet even this pain is joy;
though sinister in its unforgivingness.
Then finally, unexpected calm spreads over thought patterns
As my mind opens to accept its fate…
Forever changed, never quite the same
Ego death releasing depths of ignorance –
It is finally free.
Truly, you only lifted my mindset.
My thoughts defy gravity.
