"I believe in a long, prolonged derangement of the senses in order to obtain the unknown... Although I live in the subconscious, our pale reason hides the infinite from us." -Jim Morrison


Insomnia keeps me awake, I have these thoughts within my head,
A fog that I can't escape, am I alive or am I dead?
Emptiness feels numb, like the frosty skin that it consumes,
Am I lying on my feet, or am I standing in my tomb?
Without hate we would not know love, and without love there would be now pain,
But I feel like I am in between, and this numbness feels so plain.
Green-blue eyes reflect Medusa's gaze into the sea,
The sea spreads to the land, now you're numb just like me.


The author's comments:
I believe that love and hate are both better than the gray area that consumes the middle. It is also this gray area in which I find myself. No need for love, and no desire to hate.
