Osmosis

If we live in parallel universes
why aren't the membranes permeable?

Why can't I dive into your world?
Into the glory of the colours so deep
The greener grass, the inkier sea
The bloodier sky , the milkier moon
The riotous flowers gently floating
like blaring, psychedelic hallucinations

Tell me, why you can't flow into mine?
Why can't you let the dusk envelope you
The soul weld its shadow to your being
Aren't you tired of the glorious light
Don't you need a bit of soothing darkness
a bit of undisturbed silence
to lull you to sleep

Side by side, joint at the hip
are your world and mine
Disfigured conjoined twins
seemingly unaware of each others
blessed and unfortunate existences.

Really nice.

when you have a creative mind,words seem to well up
endlessly from within.
