The Path My Feet Must Follow

nautilus

path before me does not

stretch out

into horizon

no straight lines

for me to walk

it curves

a seashell

into unknown terrain

cautiously I travel

this spiral path

circles twisting ever tighter

translucent walls

ceiling

increasingly reach out

to brush

my hair

my arms

bare feet

negotiate smooth surface

slippery with memory

I descend

deeper

ever deeper

into the darkness

of my own heart

knowing not what dwells

in its deepest recesses
