smoke and mirrors

thoughts exist.
before the words.
words reflect thought.
they are not thoughts.
they are just words.
an imperfect mirror, at best.

we wrap ourselves
in the comfort of the mirror-world
created by the language
that has been engineered
to make us want to stay
inside the funhouse,
looking at twisty reflections
of what is real,
afraid to break free.
