Freedom from blood pumping
and nerves synapsing.
air ticking nostrils as lungs fill and deflate.
To escape what it is like to be human.
Transitioning from this avatar with 4 stumps
To a live, fiery ball of energy that chases its own tail.
To be a soul all throughout.
If just for a moment the soul could leave its body
And experience pure energy-
To feel the existence that is separate from
This meat suit that we call a body.
Not only to experience separation but to
Co-exist, co-entangle, commingle
For body and soul to align
In a way that we escape the
Life of this dumb, physical body
That attaches itself to ego and
Doesn’t let go of thoughts and
Ideas when it should,
And live as a pure soul would
To live and breathe in this body
And yet exist as a soul-
Free from the malice tongues
That snap at our brains
Free from the ego
Who screams to have
Issues with the world around
So you don’t get too attached
Or get hurt.
To escape from the brain and
To exist without fear.
