Repetitions of the Guph

Darkness invades the womb in secret,
Somberly it cries for Otzar – that treasury of souls
trapped in never – never…..
Shouting to the Heavens to forgive them –
To bane their past – or allow them
to hold it dearly before that next splash –
that next great intrusion to banality –
that slippery ride down the water slide –
into life – birth – selfishness – and death.
And up the ladder again……
Again and again, relentlessly swallowing
sweet little packets of hedonistic fever.
Only to climb up the slide again – and again.
Cry ye, old soul in darkness – cry for the light –
the wisdom to know how to stop the cycle –
to know not to dive for pennies –
nor chase the girls in bikinis –
but to seek those whose pools are dry.
And give them yours.
