Black in Disguise

January 23, 2010
We’ve been running for hours, yet are grounded in time
I want to redeem you, but you’ve stolen my eyes.
The light you shed is obliterated by the darkness of your intent
All I can see are the outlines of a certainty untold
A steel door separates us and I stand here alone,
You knocking, knocking, but I have hidden the key.
Only you can retrieve it, as it lies in the corner of your soul, but
You manipulate my eyes, hoping it will reveal itself.
You change the colors, muddying my vision into a hazy mess
You spin me around like a Merry-go-round,
You laugh and you turn as you dangle your false key
But the joke is on You as Your sky closes in
The impregnated clouds divulge your well-kept secrets
Rain washing, washing, washing you in your own mess
The key slips out of your mouth and the ramparts fall
All I know now is that I know nothing at all.
