Misplaced Missive #80 – Mirage

Too far away
Didn’t understand before
Like the oasis in the distance
Beautiful perfection
Unreachable destination
By the vision

Endless nothing
That’s what I desire to see
Nothing to aspire towards
Nothing to deceive me
Nothing to believe

Nothing I can do
That knowledge hurts too
Seems close enough to touch
But I just walk right through
With sick impulse
And hope proven false

Nothing to hurt
Nothing to be hurt by
Nothing to decide
Because I know there’s
Nothing but the delusion

Wish I was unaware
Free from scenes
Of what I’ll never deserve
Free to wander the desert
Not worried
About nothing.
