Poem: omkara

one thing that is everywhere
and will outlast every blaze and shimmer
is the foe of light and life
and I can't see any sensibility
in its neglecting or failing evasion

I bury my every squinting eye far
from the aches of a swollen pupil
it's the only place to be knighted
the only way my name can be heard
echoing through every temple's whisper,
sigh, mutter and wince of denial or indifference

the dark will always transcend light
a black flame with an eternal glow
never flickers or wavers
as long as I accept the fate of all things

I am dark

I am existence
