this world is a mirage

when I forget who I am
i sink back into the hole of suffering
i spent years climbing out of.

when I get lost in the dream 
and try and control it
it slips through my fingers
like sand.

and even though it causes me
great suffering
still the pull to return
to its righteous indignation 
is almost overwhelming.

this world is a mirage 
that appears from nowhere
and vanishes
when you seek its truth
you cannot drink
refreshing water
from this world of dream
to taste the vital waters
that nourish
you must

dissolve all idea
of believing in
anything your senses
present to you.

the water that awaits you
will fill your soul
with bliss and wonder.
