If I close my eyes tight enough

maybe I could 
turn this frigid showering of
rusty water into some
secret waterfall 
maybe I would feel less alone

If I close my eyes tight enough
maybe I could 
regrow this old back of mine
conquer continents 
with fresh white bones
maybe I would feel more alive

If I close my eyes tight enough
maybe I could even
start all over again
open different doors
walk down different roads
become what I am now not
maybe I would feel less alien

I’ve had my eyes closed so tightly
for such a long long time 
and I am afraid to open them now
for I have a sinking feeling that
I’ve not gotten anywhere at all
