a fool’s poem

Holiday Greetings from Beyond

Come Play With Me, it said.

NO!! I’m afraid… I cried.

Yes, I Understand, It’s Okay To Come Closer, it replied.

NO! I don’t want to get hurt again! Go away!

Look Down… You Will Find That Your Next Step Is But a Tiny Hop Down, it cajoled.

NO! I’m afraid of heights! Are you crazy?!

I Am a Pool, a Well, a Lake. I Am Here And You Have Only To Drink, it suggested enigmatically.

What?! There’s no telling who has been swimming in there prior to this, No Way!

Good… You Are Starting To Turn Your Mind Toward IT, now it was really confusing me.

What?!?! What ever do you mean? I like where I was at…

Yes, Just Relax, Let Go, Allow the Breath of Life to Flow Effortlessly, it whispered, closer now.

But I’m comfortable with my suffering! I know it, it’s familiar! I’m scared of change…

You Are Simply Delaying the Inevitable, it uttered.

What?! I want out! I did not sign up for this!

Good… Do You Realize That You Have Been Creeping Ever Closer to ME this Whole Time? It questioned.

What?! OH NO! I don’t want this! I’m afraid… Fuck off… please!

Just Breathe… Come Join Me… Rest in Ease and Bliss, it suggested.

Oh… Why… This change is easier… But I still don’t know! I’m skeptical!

Be Gentle… Yet Firm… As You Step Forward Into the Light, it was enigmatic yet again.

But I’ve always stay on the fringes…

Yes… Stayed. A statement this time.

Oh… wait… this change is… just right.

You Are the Juice of Transformation… Allow IT… Know IT… Be IT. It spoke for the last time.
