Deeper, darker, further I have reached
Everyone left, a few beseeched
What could be the reason?
What did they need done?
Maybe if I shut my eyes tight
I would not have to understand what’s right
And so I lay here all this while
Every time I wanted to get up-
Invisible hands pulled me back
Until I saw no point in the fight
Enveloping the abyss-
It’s been easier being out of sight
