I sit as the drone of fragments of light and quivering sound pass

Unsteadily making its way through the expanse of darkness.

The noise and light fades, replaced by the sound of silence,

The sound of vibrations,

Yet peaceful and still.

I lay back feeling calm and at ease,

Letting the darkness envelop me;

It pierces into my soul

Makes a home for itself.

And in this movement of bliss, far from it all,

I find myself without worry, care nor identity.

‘I’ lost its meaning

For one was nothing

But another shadow,

In the empty realms of darkness.
