Struggling straining squinting to see
Training my eyes for even a blink
A wink or a flicker of some kind

I have seen nothing so far
But a liquid wall of darkness beyond
The tip of my own flawed senses
Doomed as this bleak season closes in

Perhaps it is finally time for me
To throw myself into making a choice
Grab my favorite fake and get to work
Wallowing in my very own lie(ght)
