Beyond Horizons of Our Eyes

As fathomed facts escape each gauge
and truths pursued evade the page
then bolt outside our bridled sight
to lose us in a lesser light

profundities still tantalize
beyond horizons of our eyes
where cosmic fog wells with a glow
of revelations none may know

until we map all boundaries
of theories walled by falsities
and chart strange routes through unnamed space
to seek the real we must face.
