    “Shades of Black”

    Gazing around an intellectually vapid humanity
    Comfortable in their Shades of Grey
    I realize instead
    We exist in Shades of Black

    This revelation causes the feeling
    Of a million insects crawling on the skin
    Forever blind in their direction

    This revelation causes the feeling
    Of being trapped on a deserted, metallic ship
    In the middle of an Underworld ocean


    I realize underneath the human perception
    Lies a derelict, diseased world
    Afraid of seeing
    Their multitudes of Black

    I can’t see past the dark
    Or swim across that flaccid water
    This black veil blinds me
    And my only light
    Is offered in death

    How I wish
    To live in a world
    With Shades of Nothing
    And Nothing More
