Eyes Closed

from by Sir Greendown



We are all so easily led astray, but we shouldn't be ashamed. That haplessness is beauty.


Take it from me (a seeker in the dark)
Don't let the light go
Because love's dumb spark
Will sting and betray
And lead you

It's late
And you're tired
Don't let your eyes close

One becomes accustomed to life without light
It's the sad truth
No miracle star
Will herald the day
the beacon
Is in you
