Christopher Santiago | A Glimpse

…And the world undressed itself,
naked against my ambivalent eyes,
and I caught glimpses of what it really was.

A spontaneous selection of limitless colors,
angles that broke the simplicity of symmetry,
flashing images of exposed realities,

Clear visions of people, places, and purpose
held within a moment of conscious clarity.
I prayed to never lose its embrace.

But the dawn always comes back,
and once again I am left longing
to grasp distant dreams of awakening.
