Shadow of Entanglement

Down in the depths

Light up above streaming in

To get there though?

So many paths lead astray

How to navigate?

To find one’s way?

Knots await a wrong turn

Ropes which wrap around, pull tighter, suffocate

Too thin, and the twig will break, you shall fall

Back into the abyss

The big branches seem the most successful route

However they require a steep vertical incline and offer no respite along the journey

One may tire, slip and plummet all the way to the bottom

Maybe our best hope is to literally just jump

To hurl ourselves with everything we’ve got

In one crazy moment of madness

Close your eyes

Pray you catch a branch

Cling on for dear life if you do

Then scramble

The remainder of the way

Till you reach the light

Or die trying

Love the gradient of darkness to light.
