Day 170: replaced by every day

They take it with them.
They steal away into the night and never look back.
They move in reverse.
So you can never catch them.
And they can see through the black.
While we remain asleep.
Dreaming.
They don’t pay attention to you.
Or to me.
They just take possesion of it.
And then sell it to the next high bidder.
Laughing to themselves.
At how much profit they made.
At our cost.
And how we will never know just how much it was worth.

Because we never opened our eyes in the dark.

  2. Sometimes it's so much easier not to look, isn't it? Few have that bravery to truly look life hard in the eye.


    So glad to have tripped over you, I look forward to visiting again.
