Reason for Regret



Partial, pretending, the light of
dimmed
          departure
from existential implication,

advancement is not the
traditional trajectory
                                                     toward mere
                                                                                         understanding,
systematic realization
unfolds within the hands
of
prototypical achievement.

Imaginary focus
the
  benign
in correctible faculties—
                                                                   silhouettes among
the partial, pretended
advertised glare
                                                of
existing within a neglectful
disposition.

 

 

The Conclusion can be Folded into Various Shapes



Resulting in, jumping from an ensuing
burgeon, any beginning causes
a finish, outlining two classes
of existences,
incongruous
clench must eventually unfold
into its resting positional state
eventually, the ensuing.
 

 




When the Focus is Presented Aesthetically


The forthcoming erases
                                                                     diluted recollections,
the insignificant among
the overpowering
pushing beyond the stagnant
                                                                      in retribution
                                                                                 for
cultivating nonchalance
toward betterment.

However the invention syllables itself,
equation in the ensuing must
                                                                       reinvent
beautifully.

 

 

The Oscillation of the Paradox



The relevance of paradoxical
environments
escape among the uncritical
dispositional in thought.

Hitherto
aliveness announced
in dichotomous
duality,
space entered pausing stillness,
delivering across the tonality
of philosophical thought
sporadic, if only definitional
in purpose, enough to categorize
a single thought to encompass
reality within a moment of specialized
enlightenment.
