Sorrow of the Enlightened

What is this gaping hole within me, 
a void where there is no passion.
It is filled with a cold liquid that feeds
the reservoir of my tears. 
What if I need more than this can offer,
what if I believe myself to me more than
a man.
I have felt the ostracism from those
of the group mind,
alone is the true individual.
Slowly I am consumed by a sorrow filled light,
a light that is colder and deeper than any darkness.
What is the light worth if loneliness 
is the result of the higher pursuit.
I have not been able to escape it.
I have reached the highest peaks
of the mountain and yet now
with this sorrow gripping me may I use
this opportunity to leap from the cliff side.
Hoping to be forgotten in the annals of time,
no name, no existence, no form, and no love.
