What Have We Done

What have we done
but fall into that bright darkness
where everything has edges
so smooth and soft
it seems impossible to feel lost
or wrong or even sorry
for what we found

What have we done
but watch each other fall
into that bright darkness
where everything has edges
so smooth and soft
we silently swell with jealously
unable to rise from the ground

What have we done
but push each other
into that bright darkness
by keeping our smooth soft edges
hidden after we discover
with horror our appetites
have no bounds
