Layers

Everything we see hides another thing, we always want to see what is hidden by what we see. - Rene Magritte

He searches frantically
For clues to the mystery
He longs to know
Nay, he must know
What it all means
Where the path leads

It taunts him.

His curiosity will burn him
He revels in the thought
And would rather be consumed
In its ravenous flames
Than die in the cold
Of ignorance like the rest

It haunts him.

He peels off layer after layer
But the layers never end
And thus he is spent
So close, too far
He would never know all
For it was in vain, you see

    In peoms, There is always deeper meaning or relation to something which is obviously not obvious, amazing stuff though.

    1. Well that's a cool way to look at it.

      "In poems, There is always deeper meaning or relation to something which is obviously not obvious"
      This poem could be about understanding the hidden meaning in a poem too...

      Thanks for the commentary :)
