Mine The Gap

mine /min/
  • an excavation for extracting previously hidden items.
  • a type of bomb just below the surface.
  • an indication of personal ownership.
  • a gaping empty worthless hole in the ground full of precious value.

They entered my mines today
and found an emptiness

so great it was full
so still it was unsettled

They'd been there before
but always ran

like a tribal warning
these caves are cursed

At the bottom is a pool of dryness
a wet ring of parched lips

The lips speak a silent song
so loud you hear nothing at all

the truth lies in that ring
and the lies ring true

And the light is so bright you are blind
And the dark is so dark, you can't hide

I'm trying to find something profound to say
but my mind isn't done with it yet.
All I know for certain Jacob
is that hidden in your mine
there is gold.

Experience is a brutal teacher.

thanks for the words guys. My mind feels so cloudy these days. I feel like I am remembering less than I used to but at the same time its not gone, just too big and too nebulous to take hold off. Always there and never there. LOL, there I go again.
