don’t blink

how come

the dreams i dream

the stars i see

the fires that warm my feet

wink out

blink out

how come

when i lay down my head

i can’t close my eyes

i can’t close my eyes

how come

when it’s a cool summer night

i can’t look up

i can’t look up

how come

when the blizzard blows

i’m outside

freezing

to death

freezing

to death

don’t blink

a chance goes faster than you think
