To Have Seen
How shall I ever tell you this?
What words would you have me say?
Would a word from me o'er an expert
Hold certain confidence... or sway?
This time is like no time...
Its purposefulness is clear.
Yet once it sinks beneath all it winks
"I have escaped you again my dear."
To see what I shouldn't see and yet see
It's that that this emptiness brings.
For me 'twould be easier to accept that I'm crazy
Than to protest that I have seen these things.
