More of an emotional poem I came up with at 2am... I used inverted colours with the art/animation on this one. (title inspired by T.S. Eliot's poem "The Love Song of J Alfred Prufrock" and reference to William Blake's "The Tyger")

And how should I presume?

I read a poem ages ago about a Tyger burning in the froest of the night

And ages since I have remained

And ages since I have remained petrified by

And ages since I have remained petrified by what I thought

And ages since I have remained petrified by what I thought I saw

And always there have been these walls that barricade all ways I find

Always, in mind I'm lost in this, this dance of longing

petrified

petrified with fear

petrified with fear the fretful feeling after

petrified with fear the fretful feeling after feeling after

petrified with fear the fretful feeling after feeling after ends.

What is so natural then, that you behold it as the gravest error one can dare to act against the world?

What if I don't intend to find intent in that-- in ways, that way?

Is it so much akin to murder, then

Is it so much akin to murder, then to dare

Is it so much akin to murder, then to dare disturb the universe?
