Maria + Me - M = Aria

After much trepidation, tribulation and altercation

Surrounding my day-to-day basis

I find myself bemused that I have reached my own Noesis;

A secret study of the dichotomy that exists within me

I know who I am

What I want

And where I’m going

No longer willing to play a faux

To forestall the eccentricity of the True Me

I brake free into the camaraderie

Composed of real believers like myself

Incandescent, dogmatic and volatile

Unhinged with words that in another time may have befogged me

But now I swim in their hilarity

Together in a Minuet of Solace

Who could ever impeach us?

I respire gladly knowing that I no longer fear frustration

But embrace it as a would-be mother would her womb

For, without it, I could have never vindicated myself

To escaping the misology I had sunken into

This is me, the new me

The re-birthed me

Risen from the ashes of the Vermilion Phoenix

Never again willing to deign before Futility and Dissonance;

The precarious sisters that will forever dwell in the back of my mind

I have reached armistice with the me within

To work together against dubitable odds

There in, revealing this new me

Which has always been

I am a hidonistic fabulist

Telling the story of my life

And this is my axiom: Maria + Me – M = Aria

The seraphic song of mine that plays so slovenly

Enabling me to indulge in my reverie

Where each an every story resides perpetually ademant

Maria + Me - M = Aria

Artist's Description

This is, for me, a catalyst. It took me about three days to put this one together not because it was hard but because I wanted each word to describe perfectly what happened to me and what I had become.

Each word has a greater meaning to me on its own and I had to look up a few of them just to be sure it meant what I thought it meant. Sometimes, its not as simple as putting a word next to another.

Anyways, I will post a more detailed description on how this transformation of self took place in my journal for anyone who’s interested.
