just now, they elude me

they hide, i seek

wrestle them to human form

they remain foams and mirages

sift them through my eyes

the tornado of them comes full-force

I am rocked to the core

I hold my head fast so it does not elude me too

these thoughts of mine

worlds of faces, wealths of words, threats to sanity

answers I seek, puzzles they grant me

sometimes they keep me company, sometimes they frighten me, sometimes they break my heart, sometimes they lie to me

but fused as one, I cannot escape them, not even in my dreams
