-Couldn't See-

in defining blind we see what it means
being blind is impossible seeing
in a blind moment I recognized me
how exactly does a blind man dream?

damage is done when knowing is first
but when living in ignorance you don't know what it's worth
knowing then losing, or lost from birth
ignorance is bliss so curiosity's not worse

what does air mean? Drowned we will see.
but blindness there, restricts everything
imagine no red, no grey, or no green
all images absent from your own blind dream
