An Ode to Nothing [04-16-02]

I have watched a blind man see,
seen another suffering,
felt this sea enwrap me,
wash me out along the tide.

I have stood on skyless land,
buried hatred in this sand,
scattered pebbles under
these dark waves, where I abide.

I have felt another's tears,
wasted countless wat'ry years,
lost my hope, my vessel,
for commandments I defied.

Lost within this cause, this choice,
long before, I had a voice..
Now my hands are bloodied,
and my words are silenced pride.

I remember black and white,
somewhere past this shady night.
Again, I am blind-folded,
and my wrists with ropes are tied.
