Closed Eyes and Burning fires
I'm walking barefoot into a dark room,
No sight of what is to come,
No foresight into my destiny,
I walk barefoot into a dark room,
Knowing all too well that the windows
were sealed shut, that the curtains were
pulled down, that the room was never
meant to be opened.
Unleashed was a fear so great, I lost
the fear of the dark itself.
I'm but a shadow now, navigating
past shapeless figures, uncaring of
surroundings, but ambitionless in
I walked barefoot into a dark room,
knowing now that a room is not
built without windows, knowing that
curtains were meant to be opened,
knowing that doors were made to be
Alas, I'd walked into the room with
eyes closed. How foolish of me, for
I'd missed the fire surrounding me.
