I Am So Unaware

entering soft blackness
eyes open
gasping inside for air
the light of a rosy dawn
kisses my cheek
I am so unaware
greeting the neighbors
without a blink
shadows have filled me
and left me cold
the blood of my body
slows
I work without knowing how
everyone around me is so unaware
a corpse walks in their midsts
tentacles of ebony
shoot through my skin, my veins, my bones
securing themselves to my soul
then even prying open that
crawling into and spinning
a silent choking web
throughout
I am so unaware
and do not seek to leave this cocoon
that will become my final downy bed
but put down my head and slog
turning from gossamer silk
to impermeable stone
