Who Feeds Who?

One by one,

I reel in millions of strands of perception.

 

Through all my ages I have connected

gossamer attachments to fleeting moments

and temporal personalities.

 

My spirit is exsanguinated by so many sources

My heart is a fat, veined Goliath

ever pumping, ever pouring forth

a web of bloated connections

 

My fears nursing from me like needy porcine infants

and now I wean them,

pulling my nourishment away.

 

I have cared so much for these little ones.

It hurts to let them go,

but I have chosen my survival

over the breeding ground of parasitic fears.

 

Each withered corpse will be a testimony to my resolve

 

Each one I will transform into a feather.

I will add these to my wings and I shall fly.

Instead of bleeding myself for my fears

I shall make them tools to serve,

and through their service will be reborn a new perception

 

This perception shall become wisdom,

from which a world can sup, if it chooses.

For there is but one source, one instant,

and it is within that brilliance I wish to dwell.

 

It is so odd that unconditional love

acts exactly like a parasite,

yet it is the only one which nourishes

the more it draws from me,

yet it does not need me.

For it is forever fed.

 

It brings cocoons and mirrors,

producing butterflies of self-reflection.

 

Once you tap into this nourishment,

you are also forever fed

and forever changed.

For you can take on its properties

and can yourself feed many,

never draining.

 

However, as long as little parasites

which do not nourish in return

are needingly bleeding me,

I am not truly partaking of the unending source,

which is Love.
