Colours in a Void

by Matthew Kruzmetra

brain dead dozing
thousand mile stare
scattered thoughts composing
I wish I didn't care

the place inside us all
darkest light is blinding
edge of the fall
wrapped yourself up tightly
our realities brought nightly

the colours in a void
you wrap yourself inside
and briefly be destroyed
consciousness denied
and the dreaming be enjoyed

sit on the edge of insanity
a cage of conscious shell
this strange beastly humanity
inside of which we dwell

take that place inside of you
and know its always there
the place of which you always knew
behind a vacant stare
