veil of falsehood

Veil of Falsehood

V, the gentle veil at rest
delicately woven shroud
intricately threaded
elaborately embroidered
dark imperceptible vestment
believing itself the Face

V, the eyelid, not the eye
magnificent muted camouflage
cloak of crystalline fog
perceives the darkness as the light
oblivious to the deception
believing itself the Seer

V, the pinnacle inverted
needle on the compass
pointing downwards
tunneling towards obscurity
leading astray,
digging the rabbit hole
a vortex of enslavement
a burial for the soul
