“Poem About Darkness”

I may never open these eyes again

who knows maybe I’m already dead

three inches of sunlight sure feels nice

when the sun goes

so do my eyes

traces on the walls shifting

can’t tell if I am falling or lifting

no reading

no thinking

thoughts of a vacation underground

always mad, always broken

is this actually happening

or did something snap

one phone call a day

drags me out of this cellar

what if tomorrow it doesn’t

break this darkness
