paradox

Isolated
Free from noise
But only for a minute,
For the sounds seep in through open doors and cracked windows
Alone
But just for the moment,
For you like to keep me company with your watchful eyes
Pleading redemption,
As I attempt to embody this new oblivion
Something I am not yet ready for
Shut eyes
Voluntarily blinded
I still want more of this dark paradise
