A free verse of internal to external exploration.

Peering, stupendously, through calmly closed eyes,
exotic arms of electricity seductively unfold,
summoning my arrival. Reaching for lazy lashes,
and exploring eyelids’ depths.
 
Surrounding sounds spin to static,
attempting to tame multi-faceted
impulses, struggling to gain strength.
 
Movement suddenly comes to pause,
replacing curious fascination
with thick, baritone blackness.
 
Stillness of silence.
 
Sudden lightning rips through perception,
erasing brief traces of artless darkness.
Its residue of steamy afterglow
soothes state of mind.
 
Lingering light begins to momentarily fade,
leaving behind a ghostly door.
A peculiar passage comprised
of positively charged magnetic mist.
 
Appearing alive, pulsating an eerie luminescence
as it emanates a soft moaning of unnatural warmth.
 
Memories flash in garbled glimpses as a powerfully
dim image grows at its core.
 
Consciousness unites conspiracy,
casting comprehension upon eternal mystery.
Epiphany is conceived, sacrificing
confounded confusion for
lasting enlightenment.
 
Twilight’s manifestation... Facilitating flight
of spirit and travel of mind,
a means by which to fluently navigate
interminable impossibilities.
 
Mastering my own self discovery,
I gallantly captain this primordial
time machine into uncertain infinitude.
Internal inquiry charts my course
as urge of instinct drops the sail.
 
Behind closed eyes:
 
Destination Unknown...
