PROMPT: Open Prompt

3
The mind seeks an answer
But the answer ignores the question
Delving deeper into the depths of the soul
The answer is lost
Unreachable
Forgotten
Lost
The mind
Determined
Stretches out its fingers into the abyss
Scraping it's walls
Whispers and hints being all that is trapped underneath it's fingernails.
Desperate
The mind delves deeper
Reaching further and further
As mindful fingers feel against the dark
It feels something
strong
Substantial
The mind pulls
But it pulls back
Suddenly the mind is thrust off the cliffs of sanity
Into the dark pit of madness
The object pulls harder
Faster
Stronger
The mind leaving the body
And entering the realm of the non-sensible
Words…
Numbers...
Secrets...
Answers…
The darkness whispers into the ear of the mind
Accepting its dark gift
The mind learns
And learns
The mind becomes larger
Stronger
Fuller
But this knowledge comes at a price
As knowledge is power
But power is a
double edged sword
And soon
The mind
Shatters
Twisting and bending
Contorts and distorts
Breaking and mending
Shattered like quartz
Memories altered
Morals rectified
The mind becomes daunted
And cries remain uncried
The mind approaches the answer
Letting it in
A new form of cancer
Wriggles under the skin
The mind should be sated
But it’s drive remains unbroken
Topics left undebated
And voices left unspoken
The mind has its answer
But the answer has the mind
Trapped in amber
A soul-crushing bind
