Shadows haunted me. I welcomed them,
Yearning for the dead who went before me,
Loved ones long lost, now delivered to me
Vividly, as though alive again.
I often did not know what I was seeing,
As past and present equally seemed real.
Reason can't compete with what we feel.
Ultimately, love transfigures being.
Beauty is a wanderer that goes
In and out of consciousness. One knows
Not what foregone confusions might be freeing.
