I find myself resisting the gravity on my eyes.
The way it tries to pull down the veil that would hide the seeping light.
And I am left confused. The words I used to whisper have no name in the darkness.
And with the words gone, nothing looks like the world that I know.
And so I cry out. My tears, like sirens wailing into the night.
And the person who answers my cry for help is me. I’m the only one who hears it.
I open my eyes, and stare straight into darkness. Show me. I seem to dare.
But it was nothing.
It was just shadows playing tricks when the light was out.
I knew that. I just... forgot. I guess.
I had hidden everything in the darkness. But they were still there. Just playing hide and seek.
Just waiting for the light to pass through. Even when my eyes are closed.
