Damnable Expressions: Poetry

Perhaps the essence of Reality
is languishing in flagrant internal opposition,
where each word is but a shadow 
on emotion's battered skull

Then Humanity's sanctimonious musings 
give subtle hints of souls deprived,
clinging to ideology within solitary worlds
we need to believe exists as we define them 

There they are,
these damnable expressions,
cast like lots onto Life's stage
where the curtain is just beginning to rise

Yet if we were truly honest,
if our truths were simply undisguised,
it wouldn't take the very breath of us
to stop trembling during our performances.
