He Fell

He fell too deep into the idea
of his own enlightenment.
Trying to explain the shadows
of his earthly life away.
When loss and sorrow claimed
their fare, he closed his heart,
becoming unaware. Seeking
numbness in his tiny intellect.
Reaching for a picture-perfect
scene that never felt quite real
at all. Grasping for the center
as he fell into the core. Expecting
more, but nevermore to feel
a hint of love within
a heart he left unspent...
