The Price of A Priori

by animalworkss

Pain is good when you’re ‘sposed to be feeling it…

Let it pulse through my body so that my vision may live,
And eventually my thoughts will rise above it

-For it’s a sign that Reason’s over stepped its boundaries,
Left the body with no sense of Self to defend
In a bombardment of Illumination from beyond the scope of my understanding-

By trudging through time, despite,
I’ll better learn to listen,
And learn to better bite my tongue
So that my lesson doesn’t fill my mouth
With that familiar taste of blood.
