it is not that you have never been here before

it is not that you have never been here before

you have!

it is not that you have wanted to return

to this place that is less a coming to than a

drawing into,

a descending stairwell that leads ever deeper into

a shadowy world of illusions, myth and imagery

that demands a being present,

a bearing witness to

what is written

on the walls that serve as your guide

as you wander

ever inwards towards

a beating, earthy center

of some form of truth if your many senses

are not closed from fear of ghosts that linger

in corners to devour unguarded exploration;

and so you descend

and come

step

by

step

into darkness

and seek the echoing replies to

uncertain steps
