This is my most odd piece yet and it will take a lot out of the reader. I know it's a little tough but take your time to understand as much as you can and let me know your thoughts.

CRUX

Stuck in a cryptogram,
living out this enigma,
walls lined with questions,
but no answer in sight,
overbearing conundrum,
herding people like sheep,
a puzzling shepherd,
leading the puzzled.

…a tough nut to crack.

Uncut Gordian knot,
adding to the intrigue,
baffled minds forging theories,
perplexion seeps in,
outwitting the valiant,
polluting the free and the clear,
complexity on the battlefield,
lacking wits to fight.

…Pandora’s box slightly ajar.

Fallen between the cracks,
bewildered shells,
awaiting the cliffhanger,
a compelling predicament,
teasing the mystery,
disturb Pandora in her sleep,
a glimpse of the riddle,
an unpredictable situation.

…hornet’s nest in hot water.

Illumination still at arm’s length,
Sphinx the herdsman,
tending to the dumbfound,
calls for a riposte,
a skirmish ensues,
intricate versus the obvious,
mind-boggled no longer,
a parable turned storyteller.
