The illusion of purpose
My heart believed
the light was true
that everything inside it's circle
appeared as it really was
the darkness ended at it's edge
and on the other side was life
a purpose glittered in it's hue
it made the paths connect the ends
and urged the fruits of struggles ripe
I sipped from it and laid inert
it made me see a future bright
a fantasy of soothing light

the intoxication did conclude
the light my heart believed was truth
began to merge in darker shades
and that is how the light arrived
