I have just danced in the inferno
I learned to rejoice within these flames
However, I now find myself in a state of crystallization
Congealed in amber, I am rooted in this anti-climactic phase
The world doesn’t demand my reaction, and pain no longer asks to be endured
Yet, my mind never learned the language of silence
My spirit is unfamiliar with this tongue of tranquility
My soul isn’t facing off with a cyclone of burdens for I have conquered all the plagues
What is asked of me is to simply stand still, while peace manifests and surges in my veins
But, who knew those prior tribulations could be so entertaining?
Who would have predicted that pain could induce such powerful catharsis?
In vanquishing my demons, my universe has settled down
And I’m perplexed as to why I am yearning for chaos to ensue once again
