darkness perceived

written by: MR.QUIPTY

@MRQUIPTY

 

sliding excuse
again
sidling nearer
gin
in hand.

a mess. sodden
and part damned
for what
you call you
or what
they call you.

matters naught
to innocents.
eyes tell hearts
only what is
taught

by mind.

my child knows
only of tumbling
and faces messy
from trembling
in joy.

you are the happiest
person in the world
of his heart.

 

NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR:

damned by eyes that do not see without innocence
