A Shade Upstream

If you stood under skies without eyes that looked in the mirror
Could you be absent from the feelings in your heart
Would you never feel alone, even standing in the shadows
As everything would look the same
No shades apart

If everything you disliked became all you ever searched for
Would you find your steps had nowhere to go
As hours advanced into days and nights that collided
Into a downhill stream of nothingness
You already know

There is a difference between just knowing and searching
Doing absolutely nothing and having a dream
What you may find when your eyes look in that mirror
Could color your world outside of shadows
A shade upstream
