Dying of thirst

In a pool of pure reason

==========================

 

 

 

and then i shall break

and that which is not love shall be love to me

 

 

 

          and kindness shall be love

 

 

 

          and tolerance shall be love

 

          and charity shall be love

 

          and success shall be love

 

         and pity shall be love

 

i shall break and that which is untrue i shall think it true

                   

i shall make it true

                                        ...to rest...

 

and my thirst shall be so terrifying that that which is not water i shall think it water

 

 

 

                                        ...and rest...

 

 

 

and i shall be

 

 

 

          not the plant that thirsted for water

 

 

 

          not the flower that yearned for love

 

               but i shall be that that i thought

 

                                             ...to rest...

i shall be that that i think
