To pass the time I doused the light
and stumbled blind into the night
to brave the darkening twilight terror
in search of life's most joyous error

In the deepening crushing black
I lost all hope of turning back
And so I tread uncertain steps
Where poets dreamt and madness slept

I left my common sense behind
For hollow prophets to someday find;
I threw my soul into a gust
Of fragrant multicolored dust

The skies were painted teal and gold
Where powdered-sugar clouds unrolled
and touched the cresting milky seas
while I gazed in awe from shaded trees

I danced with angels, and demons too
They're not so different from me and you.
I cheated death, I beat the odds
And taught pottery to the gods

But when the end came slowly near
And my world was soaked in Heaven's tears
I bid farewell to my friend, the strange
And tread slowly back from which I'd came

A league of men and women all
With impressive papers on their wall
Will preach the worship of what is real
But I know none but what I feel.
