bleaker light

It’s funny how the echo of a touch
Can create a tidal wave
A hurricane
Of helplessness
Wave after wave
The shore gets farther
The light becomes bleaker

I bet you didn’t know
Shock can build a shell
And suddenly I’m soundproof

Innocence is not something regained
Don’t say a word
What did I know

Some say ignorance is bliss
I believe it is ephemeral
Like a bubble that can’t help but be popped
A glass world waiting to be shattered

And as the avalanche of crystalline shards
Rains back down to earth like angel tears
Mourning the soul

That somewhere along the way
Was lost at sea
Never to be seen
Again
The light is lost.
