Dim the Light | A Poem by Cole Severns

Desperate yearning saturated in hopeful delusions spawned by the
invisible toiling efforts of superego preservation. Denial of the
void’s painful existence blurs the profound truths of the beautiful
salvation in the acceptance of its own being. Painstaking deception
unearths the the brutal obviousness of transparency. Bystanders slowly
skimming the surface fleece the armor protecting what is underneath
the displayed facade. Secretly immersed in the frantic search for the
catalyst that undresses the buried and bottled up colors at the core
of its layers.
