Open the curtains and

Let the light rush in like

Water rushing past 

The floodgates

Watch it illuminate even

The darkest corners and see

The intricate design of 

The cobwebs as

Rainbows reflect onto them off

Of sparkling crystals

Watch what was once dim and ugly

Become vibrant and full

Of life


Open the floodgates of 

Your mind

Let the thoughts rush out and

Feel the emotions fill every 

Hollow of your body

Until they pour out of you 

In a song more beautiful than 

That of the sirens who

Lured sailors to their death 

Let it echo down 

Every hall until you

Feel nothing but

Pure, unadulterated bliss
