High Below Us - Poem by Nick Perritt

Raise your eyes
The sun engulfs the sky
Bury your hearts
The earth returns to dust

With every secret
I bury with lies
My soul is darkened
A light is put out

With every truth
I reveal
A weight is lifted
I wander between eyes

Can you feel the fire
Burning all around us
Can you smell the fear
Poisoning our minds

Look up, Look up
There's nothing left beneath
Fill the void with love
Yours to hold
To keep
