Hedonist – Refuge

Replacing all this uncertainty,
all this tricky humanity
with the pleasure of the senses
makes so much sense.

It makes no sense
not to enjoy the substance of the world
and enter into its forgetfulness.

I am always still myself
only focused on distractions,
detached from the hard edges of experience
where the process of existence
ties me into all sorts of troublesome knots
and unravels the peace I so desire.

The Poetry of Archetypes are written by Sulaiman Mackay

Sulaiman Mackay is a lifelong lover of writing poetry and has been particularly enamored with it since arriving at middle-age. He has realized it is a powerfully evocative and revealing means of self discovery and conscious development. He started writing poems about archetypes as a way of expressing his inner work, discovering the light and shadow aspects of his psyche, and to explore the energetics of the archetypal experience. He has recently completed an Honours Degree in Creative Communications at the University of Canberra and is currently looking for a way to turn his love for the written word into paid work.
