Sunset Bleeds

I have paralyzed myself with its beauty
Distant dreams are unimportant
As I practically fly through every mystery 
Where my inner self meets my soul
Despite fears, confusion, however,
Reluctant, I could not speak 
When we have forgotten how to speak
Life relaxed in abandonment
We consider the option of total denial or insanity
The world is not perfect 
This a prison of truth
Now I know what the actual world feels like
As I consider the option of prayer
I will be this way only a moment
As sunset bleeds into the lake
