Close your eyes.

You don't see absolute dark, do you?
A pure dusk is hard to find.

We still see flickers here and there,
reminders of the world
just beyond our eyelid.

You've closed your eyelids, good.
Now close your second pair.

I warn you –
It may seem difficult at first.

It never is too complicated though.

You can always find them,
in the same way you constantly meet yourself
No matter how far you run away.

Here, the flickers kick the bucket.
True darkness devours your eyes.

Care to immerse yourself?

Your sight can't adjust –
All light has left.
There are no outlines to capture,
No shapes in the dark.

However, if you stare long enough,
You can see little tendrils of light even here.
They're falling down, past your ankles

There's a river below you.
That's where the light comes from.
Flowing, moving

You can hear the rumbling
as you sit above it.

Wherever you are,
whenever you close your second eyelid,
It will always be there.

Endless.
What's there when I close my eyes twice.
I wonder, is this what the blind see?


"Does an undying darkness even exist?
A desire to hide can easily waver."

I actually tried closing my "second eyelid." I spent an hour outside, nothing.
Darn.
Then again, I don't want to go blind
by the river of lighttt

I've tried too, and afterward I couldn't stop laughing at my epic failure! I started to sleepwalk, and then I ran into someone in the hallway... who might have also been sleepwalking, for all I know.

Just so you know, I read all your deviations, and I like them all. :) I forget to click 'add' sometimes, but if you're wondering, you can ask... There might be a few that I deliberately didn't add, but most I just forgot. :)

^^ Same goes for me.

I'd like to know why you deliberately don't add some, but that's all.

And I'll gladly tell you if you want to ask about any particular one that I did not add. :) You've written quite a few... And, there are probably quite a few that I forgot to click for. Why don't you pick some of the ones that meant the most to you, that I didn't add? Ask me and I'll tell you if it was deliberate or just forgetfulness, and if deliberate, I'll do my best to figure out why... Keeping in mind that some of them were a long time ago, and I may not remember, and have to come up with a 'why don't I do it now' instead of having a 'why didn't I then'. If I can't, I'll just add them now. :)
