Crux and Flux


Consider this – no two minds game will morph the same

With your body as the crux, and mine as the flux

Our constant flux will map oddly in cordial aim.

If fame is the goal of the game, then winning struck


A superficial spark which render your heart weak

And in vain, with its claustrophobic crowds pressure

Against your very nature of flux to change! Bleak

Is the permutation towards constant crux’s tier.


If my mind dissipates the crux of the matter,

Will your body then disengage with my tiered heart?

Back and forth, we are variably constant creatures.

Solders of heart pieces to bodies that don’t chart


On the constellation of stars. Overflowing

Thoughts to the lowest decisive point of impact!

Flower of cognition falls to my hands! I Think

Of you everyday until the dawn of time crack


The early lights of enlightenment. I dream of crux

With your body under flux and your mind untouch!
