I saw a Way, forward
and cloaked myself in the skin
of a Digital dimension.

I began living
cloud-soaring and ascending soft
and the headset came off.

Now even curtains are
retreating, from the light now
streaming into my eyeballs.

Ow! To whit, I prefer
to refer to it as "path."
Plans, they fail.

Paths diverge.
Was thinking of my plans to improve my career situation in regards to breaking into XR projects, and started laughing about some of my past plans and how very wrong they went.

I then thought of how I'm still stubbornly going after the coolest things I've experienced in my life since I was a kid that were never "plans" and just Were for me, and figured I'd ***** all that onto my public page.

Watch your step!

A coughing fit attacks, I lose my eyeballs
They pop right out and roll around the floor
Collecting dust bunnies, andĀ hitting the walls
Gone they are, lost forevermore

Blind I sit, now trying to adjust here
Longing for the sense I used to know
Another coughing fit hits, I lose my ears
Scurrying from me, away they go

Deafened, blind and sick I sit so sadly
Trying not to cough another round
I miss the ugliness in life so badly
And truly I do miss the worst of sounds

They roll.
The close.
They're near my nose.
They wink.
They weep.
They dream when I sleep.
Windows to the soul.
Pupils black as coal.
I see all sorts.
They are the gateway to my thoughts.
I cherish my eyeballs!

I learned today that for eyes to be like oceans they don't have to be blue
I didn't think it was possible to drown in brown
