Anagnorisis - Metamorphosis

This final moment too shall pass
Nothing left of Nothingness
Separated particles held by shedding skin
I'm not now what I was then

Fractal light colliding, past and present on repeat
Infinitely trapped in trance

Staring into and out of all the same
To be removed in broken light
Crushing guilt that drowns my joy
An awakening of self-reproach
Letting go and closing eyes
Break the silence and the stare

Pain then subjugated as memories now
Time reigns supreme yet no wounds healed
Years of waiting for its return
Vengeance limited by perception
In anticipation I lost my innocence

I can't let go if I don't hold on
The worst of times all that remains
I can't let go if I don't hold on
The best of life the wasted energy in placing blame
You died and I moved on
Only at a distance could we ever repair
And now what's further apart than death?

This space predicated by past trespasses
Losses accepted and expected
Staring into the eyes of the enemy which is me
This negative reflection, this apathetic me

...and I'm trapped in trance
