Attached

Eyelids

flicker

like fireflies

in the presence

of darkness

Eyes

attached

to lies

perpetuated

in the presence

of disappearance

Lids

opening

themselves

to everything

we wanted to be nothing

As

we realize

that

eyes

and

I’s

Aren’t like fireflies

flickering

in the darkness

They

lie

in the presence

of disappearance

opening

themselves

to everything
