“Tease the light.” He said
Let it in but not to stay.
Allow its brightness, momentary rest in your eyes.
Too long and you will turn blind.
Too long and it will burn the irises of your soul.
“Tease the light” he said.
It comes from a million miles away
To brighten up your day.
But there are black holes out there and if you stare too long into space.
They’ll eat up your face.
