Black Dawn


I was in a flawed world
Searching for perfection.
I had no sun or moon.
I lived in a blemished shadow.
There was a sea of confused people
Running like a river,
All searching for it too.
Even in the darkest sea,
I found a way to be alone.
Then I crashed into you.
Even in the darkest sea,
I found a way to see you.
We smiled and watched all the fools,
Watched them search blind for nothing.
Perfection isn’t flawless.
Perfection is flaws in all the perfect places.
I don’t need light to feel your hand in mine
Or to see what is important.
I’ll stay in the darkness with you.

Our life is twofold; Sleep hath its own world,
A boundary between the things misnamed
Death and existence: Sleep hath its own world,
And a wide realm of wild reality,
