Beyond convoluted labyrinths

And shrouded spaces

Beyond cosmic possibilities

And secrets that lie deep beneath

Beyond nuances and gradients of shade

And aliases and their logical mimicries

Beyond the long meandering road home

And the frequent roadblocks

Beyond the tipping point of unreason

And the reigns of sensibility

Beyond the sanity of the known

And the insatiability of the unknown

Beyond the craftsmanship of evolution

And the sleeping beauty of providence

Rests a raging insomniac with her eyes stitched wide open

Weaving together threads of atoms

Building tapesteries of knowledge

With the spindle of reason
