Protagonist of the Void

Deviation Actions

Literature Text

Inside this mound of flesh
I am small; a body of atoms
Rocking together in chaos

Theory of blood, of matter.
What's your hypothesis?
Where's the fact in your page
of assumptions?

The theory of me; many faces
Constant change. I am your
protagonist.

Where is the verse in adversity?
I am the voice of the void
protected by men of many faces,
Protectress of none.
Inspired by recent life events and looking at myself from other people's eyes. I know that I am just another ridiculous soul spilled into a human shell.

Hear me read 'Protagonist of the Void'

Seeking the 'fact' (truth) is a path everyone treads except for those who chose to dwell in the void of pure hedonism; and yes it is impossible to stand still long upon it. Nicely penned. :)
