Some Philosophy

Denis Buchel “Mirrored”

what is life,
what is love,
I’ve turned off the lights
in my mind, and for what cost?

To submit my self in truth,
and lie upon my suffering.. as if it were

nothing more than a pillow,
or an honest lover.. God

“I shall know only as much as the body will allow”

and you will find this

wisdom: that true living does not exist
without being riddled

in pain;

(as crimson smiles gleam
from under knives and gnawing teeth), I believe

this is not insanity, this is Nature..
and her present is ‘acceptance’.
