Burden of Genius

Can I decide not to care
Leave the dark to itself
Hide behind layers of space
Repeat until I get undone

Illusions hit rock bottom
Where they fester until they rot
There is only so much
Tomorrow I'll die for real

Anywhozen, this is a great poem. Short and sweet. Less imagery involved but still emotionally impactful.
