If I Close My EyesA Poem by Harry Mora
What if I should close my eyes and never wake?
This world, which has become sickening to me
Just as I sicken it in turn,
Would this world wish to wake me?
Would you miss the time with me?
What if I should tire from endlessly rebuilding
These bridges that wish to burn
My hands worn bloody from this fruitless endeavor
My heart grown weary and cold
From always seeking some forever
What if I should grow cold in this sleep
Would you join me in turn?
Would you wish to warm me?
Or simply watch me burn?
Cover my eyes with silver
As this world remakes me in ice
What if I should close my eyes and never wake
..........wouldn't that be nice?
