On this brink of everything I know,
I wait at the precipice of incertitude.
I assume the form of the beholder,
But realize beauty is in the eye of the numinous landscapes
that eclipse human sentience.
I reach my zenith.
Transcendence without invigilation.
Solitude with doubt.
I am not an acolyte of faith,
And yet I sense the illumination of that which
appeals to our credulity, and our servility.
My gaze is held for a sip of momentary grace,
And a taste of alleviation.
My eyes close,
But reveal that my gaze is still held.
Attainable redemption, I simply must grasp
the form of that which I would condemn - human embodiment.
Endowed with the limits of our maker.
Impotency, evil, perhaps both?
I still breathe at the precipice,
But I no longer wait
