Still Dark

Close my eyes.

Open my eyes.

Still dark.

 

Open my eyes.

Close my eyes.

Still dark.

 

Close my eyes.

Try to see

what were my dreams.

Pushing against

an invisible screen.

It bends,

but I still can’t see.

 

Open my eyes

Still dark.

 

Reaching out,

trying to collect the light,

but there is no light here,

only an endless,

empty,

black.

Can’t tell

if I’m floating,

or falling.

Still dark.

 

Close my eyes.

Open my eyes.

Close my eyes.

Open my eyes.

 

There used to be

something here,

I’m almost sure of it.

I don’t remember

being born of the void.

If this is oblivion,

then what am I to perceive it?

I remember,

there was something

here before.

 

Open my eyes.

Close my eyes.

Still dark.

Close my eyes.

Open my eyes.

Still dark.

 

Alone,

here in this vast emptiness.

No moon,

no stars,

no Earth,

no face;

nothing.

Just me.

 

Close my eyes.

Open my eyes.
