In Your Mind Exists The Infinite

written by: Ethan Lesley

@ethananarchy

 

In your mind exists the infinite
That which you can only pour into art
into writing
into paper
that can only be understood by same minds

It cries out of you
You turn it alive
The wyverns overhead
that you witness in constant
battle, as you’re cartographing tunnels you escape to
Or at least you try

You write to empower
but you destroy
You convince yourself you’re an ally when you’re not
An outsider in a city more obsessed with other paths
Other jobs, more valuable
than what your mind-store produce
You starve, physically and mentally
as you consider yourself
a faux artist
You lay down, ending up
A connoisseur in the making that will never become.

 

NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR:

"In your mind exists the infinite" is an entry to my free verse collection, Life In The Infinite.
