Don't Open Your Eyes

Don't Open Your Eyes

A Poem by Adam Jordan Turner

Don't open your eyes, there is no surprise

Don't believe what they say, it's only lies

keep yourself wrapped up, tight and furled

Safe and calm, in your own little world

It's time to go back to your comfortable room

It was so very bold to shoot for the moon

Even though you missed, and also missed the stars

Congratulate yourself, you got very far

You can do it again, you'll have many a chance

But for the moment, love, you're stuck in a trance

Don't close the doors, leave them ajar

It's just time to close the wounds, and cover the scars

You've been a little broken, beaten by fear

You've been a little burned from the fierce atmosphere

So just recuperate, it'll be over soon

Keep yourself sane in a tight caccoon

There will come a day with brand new skys

And like a pheaonix from ashes, you will rise

Until that day comes, where new ambitions arrive

While you are not the "you" you know, don't open your eyes.

The rhtyhm works really well here to show a sort of inner dialogue (at least that's how I read it, as if the poet is talking to himself). I especially love the sort of tongue twister final line. I also think the idea of shutting yourself off to heal is interesting.

I am a 20 year old artist. Writing is something I have always found interesting, and fun, however I did not take on the challenge until recently. I mostly write song lyrics, my mother is a lyricist, .. more..
