Nocturne (Friends Without)
I sit with two others in a dimly lit room.
We laugh and talk through the evening
and into the night.
But others come, bringing sickness.
I no longer know them.
In their heads, their eyes are not their own.
Nocturne (Friends Within)
I hate what I cannot see, and shun those
I can’t understand.
I will try, I promise I will try, to grow.
Let it in.
So I too can stare upon a world alien
Do I even know myself?
Are these eyes even my own anymore?
open the floodgates
water now broken
dead stone weight escapes
breath never drawn
let me hold It
— The End —
