About the Poem
This poem I wrote January 11, 1999, and I wrote this for any one who has ever said "I understand" because in fact they don't. They can't. I don't look at the world, I look in the world.

Through My Eyes
Like tyrants assembled with tears
Trembling like a tomb
And singing like a statue
I am as empty as the ocean.
My blind eyes scream in silence
So this eternal echo will be known.
Given to the foils of time,
And shattered like plate glass-
You freeze within the fire.
Darkness now lives at daylight,
And shadows turn to the ghosts.
With all that shined is hollow
You imagine unconsciously.
And pretending to sleep you realize,
Nothing is what it seems.
