Dousing the Light

Updated on June 18, 2013

What better way to never see

I stare into the sun

For moments upon moments

My seeing days are done


What better way to never hear

I call upon the thunder

Aver it as my sonic shroud

Cognizance asunder


What better way to never speak

I gnaw off my relations

Re-colonize my heart and mind

Embrace civilization


What better way to never know

I drown the truth in lies

Bereft of my reality

Stagnant, drawing flies

      Awesome. TV is the new opiate of the masses.

      P.S. I saw your reply to Ericdierker's question. You are an uncommonly original, talented thinker and writer and poet and your opinion means alot to me. :-)
