If Ever

If ever I tell you
I don’t know the answer
It’s only the truth
Like a fairy tale
In which fallibility is a curse
And knowledge awaits rescue
From a secluded tower
Perched in a neglected land
Where no maps are drawn
In the burnt hues of the earth
Upon the walls of caves
Where once upon a time
Wonder sought shelter
And danced in firelight
Until the world forgot
That day and night
Are the tandem reflection
Of the seen and unseen
Belief and perception
