    Run as fast as I can,<br />
    I can only stand tree-still.<br />
    I spread my fingers seeking something that isn't there<br />
    and try to get something firm to stand on.<br />
    <br />
    I enter,<br />
    not into night<br />
    but into what night exposes as it darkens.<br />
    I keep wondering where to place a lamp to keep seeing what I see,<br />
    till there's nothing left to throw light on.<br />
    And that makes me try drawing closer to myself<br />
    the naked depth that opens before me.<br />
    But before kissing him I spread my fingers<br />
    thinking as I free-fall<br />
    that I may waken in vain while falling.....<br />
    <br />
    .....Even when a crowd of distances supports me,<br />
    because I didn't know where the distances came from,<br />
    I couldn't say this was not a dream.<br />
    No pain wakened me.<br />
    <br />
    I expand on and on<br />
    but like an awkward tree I am sure only of my expanding,<br />
    unsure altogether where I am.<br />
    For even if the sun should suddenly begin to shine,<br />
    earth and sky might grow visible<br />
    but I could see nothing else.<br />
    Though night reveals to me<br />
    what daylight conceals,<br />
    even then I can see nothing.<br />

    My profile is pretty embarrassing tbh.
