the sky is a lie

if all things
are beheld by human vision
and there are none beyond

if all that is
can be held within
the thought of man

if our only love
is that of our own
making

if all we can know
is what is attainable
and all pursuit
immediate, only to
subside thereafter

then all we strive after
is nothing!

to seek after the unknowable
to reach for the unreachable
to believe in the impossible
to envision the unseen

if this is mad
then let me be damned forever so
yet the nightmare concede the dream
