Rage Against the Sun

I'm
Lost in
Seashells
On sandy
Shores.

img_1389_400Lost
In burning
Tyres in
Empty
Doors.

Lost in
Crumpled
Leaves
On salty
Floors.

Lost in
Kisses
That
Flew
And
Soared

Lost in
Fragments
I once
Adored.

Lost in
Aromas of
Fish-n-chips;
Trapped
Memories,
Wrapped
In memories
Of yesterday.

I'm
Lost ,that
We are
Lost.

Our lost
Humanity;
Our lost
Urbanity,
Our lost
Insanity,
Our lost
Civility.

Our lost
Days that
Scrape
Down our
Corpulent
Empty city
Streets.

I'm
Lost in
Empty
Mirrors
That once
Adorned
Our burnt
Out empty
Days.

Then
Amongst
The seashells,
And empty
Doorways,and
Lost kisses,and
Salty floors;I
Resolved to
Make a final
Stand.

To
Proclaim
My final
Demands,
And rage
Against
The sun.

Indeed Nikos, the temptation to return to the shadows and the appearances of Plato's cave is always present in our positivistic society which has become accustomed to debunking the poetical, but we humanists must resist it with all the energies we have, because on that road lies dehumanization and conceiving the Self as a mere complex machine. It is much better in the realm of the intelligible and or interpretation (hermeneutics).
