Eyes, black eyes

Eyes, black eyes, won't you stop staring at the abyss

as if it wasn't there.

Ears, red and bleeding brown, won't you stop flapping at the midnight sun that just won't listen?

Pain, dear pain, will you ever accept that cease and desist we agreed upon many moons ago?

Life, black life, will you stop pretending, stop acting like me, when I behave alive?

Eyes, black eyes, will you stop being blue, at the drop of a lid, till it just isn't true?
