I woke up today
Then woke up
Then woke up and saw a light so bright it blinded
A light So bright it burned
So bright it melted my eyes a little
So that their essence pooled and fell
Like a libation to past lives...
Then I closed my eyes a little
Just a little
Just enough
to dim the edges
Just enough to blur the lines
Just enough
to live
Enough to live in a world of wasps
Enough to live in a world where vampires feed from the teet of life
Where darkness runs free no matter where the sun is
Where sharks dress up in suits
Then poison and pollute past waters
Id walk around blind if it meant I wouldnt have to see
But even in a world so full of sight
Eyes are useless in the dark
I must be sleep...
