The lights fade with each lash as they clasp together.
In the darkness the mind thickens with thought.
Startling reflections jar the mind and eyes from a blank slate.
Squinting into the reasoning they see nothing.
Drowned by the tireless woe of memories.
Reality seeping through each vein as it takes hold of each sense.
Separating their grasps on the present,
They're plunged back in.
Gasping and struggling, they wear thin.
Failing in the end of it.
They journey through the shadows beginnings,
Desired or Not.
