Ease A Puzzles Pain

A time it was not long ago, a visitor came as pleased
It began as a tease you see, he made me believe
I fell into his trance and just like that, gave a jolt
Propelled towards riches of grandeur in hope
Rising, rising, ever so slowly rising, the horizon
Appears a stare so far into the future, an illusion
Flickering bolts of lightning behind a blanket of clouds
Illuminates a glow that turns everything upsidedown
Reflecting like a mirror to show the truth of ones soul
I see mine, staring into my eyes in judgment behold
Hello darkness my old friend, you’ve returned once again
Perhaps to place the final piece and ease a puzzles pain
