the divide

"the divide"
It's simpler in the dark
to see
all those delicate little things
that we found so hard,

all those foolish things
we would want gone
but instead
are there,
just beyond the edges of perception,

     so as the endless black caresses
I find these eyes lost inside again.

Where the past comes alive
manifesting from the walls
and becoming reality
my mind so helplessly sees.

Somewhere inside all that ever is, was, and will come to pass,
     these eyes open again
and I exist once more
within the darkness,
finally realizing
its simpler for me to see
in the dark,
     all those things I missed.
