We live in a world full of confusion, our minds spinning illusions, casting us into places as dark as the deepest pits of Ganzir. It is strange how the mind works, creating concepts and fantasies based on incorrect observations and hollow promises, thereby giving life to a “possible” future that will never exist, for the illusion that was created resides only in the mind of the deluded.
Illusions are very tricky, for it often assumes a form that is pleasurable to the one who creates it. But when the veil of selfdeception is lifted an illusion has the nasty habit of backfiring. It consumes the creator with feelings of shame, doubt, and self-loathing. It makes one feel a real fool, for how can one be so blind?
How can one not see what’s right in front of him?
What evil is this?
What spell has been cast on me?
It is just amazing how well human beings excell in deceiving themselves. It is truly sad, but unfortunately it is an all to real part of what it means to be “human”. It is one of the great flaws in our design. I am not entirely sure why humans create such selfdeceiving illusions, but I do know that they are often born from desires of the heart.
While lifting the veils of deception is a painful process it also serves to ground the desillusioned person firmly to reality. This is not a fun process I can tell you! Though it is necessary, for if not released of these bonds of illusion one might suffer irreparable damage.
“I am torn, by this illusion,
I feel forlorn, and in confusion.
I heard this call, and answered with desire,
Now my teardrops fall, and my soul is on fire.
There is no love, where love should be,
Oh Gods above, have mercy on me!
There truly is, nothing to gain,
No sweet kiss, but only pain.
In my mind, this looked so great,
But I did find, love nor hate.
All this time, that we did spend,
It was sublime, yet now I lament.
My only wish, was being together,
No love there is, I should have known better…”
