I Have Seen
I have stared into the face of darkness and seen myself.
I have stared into myself and seen nothing.
I have stared at the sun so long that the earth became light.
I have stared at the earth so long that the light became dark again.
I watched as deep within myself, out of the nothing, grew a single blade
And I watched as it was devoured by the weeds within me.
I have stood at the edge of eternity and screamed obscenities into the wind
I have watched my words fall to nothingness and be shat
