Blame

blame

I can’t blame the moon,
It was a new moon
And the night had vacuumed
Even the starlight away.

I can’t blame the dream,
The strange hotel I live in
With the crooked floors
And the room I can never find.

I can’t blame the nightlight
With its burnt out bulb
And darkened angel
Unable to disperse the shadows.

No, I can only blame myself
For being afraid of the dark,
Wanting respite from the pain,
For trying to outwait the night

These are scary times. Prepare yourself to take a stand for what is right. God damn it, just be kind!
