Life (2)

There’s nothing more to human life
Beyond that which appears,
And all the heartache, joy and strife
Go on between the ears.

Behind the veil, though, of what seems,
There stands a shining face,
The eyes of which are like two gleams
Illuminating space.

Yet, all too often, I get caught
In thinking life is real:
I get depressed, distressed, distraught –
Whatever’s fake, I feel.

I wish that I were more aware;
I’d take that over love and air.
