beyond the curtains

curtains
unrecognizable: the distance beyond.
A place where refuge is found
in stories behind faces behind chances behind fences and closed books
all the places we can’t-but are
didn’t say-but stand convinced
so secure in reason like mud
weighing down the soles of our shoes

we lie about pretending
and feel lost in a web called accomplishment
clarity to chaos come-
when rocky turns in the path cause us to exist
convicted by the almighty agenda

I think this world is our hindrance
from opening the curtains
