Oh Foolish Light

Oh foolish light

Oh foolish light
you can not see
how the darkness is good to me

She whispers soft
sweet and low
the words begin to buzz
you know

It is hard to be a light
when you can not turn off at night
people are supposed to glow
and glow and glow and glow and
glow

The darkness sets the bar quite low
i curl up small and soft and sound
don’t have to think
my mind has drowned

The light expects
it demands and whines
and all the little ants oblige

I can’t
I’ve stopped
I’m numb
Let go

Just let me go to sleep quite slow
