Corruption of My Mind

By David J. Knee


The way I see the world through my eyes, one blur.

I can see ghostly shapes but no definite figure.

The world did not always look like this through my eyes.

When I was a child this was not true,

But when I grew up and allowed myself to be corrupted with the pollution of the world,


Eyes no longer projected a clear image; rather they started to project one big blur of color.

One I can barely make out. 


 The evening before the Deluge, 1843


J.W.M. Turner
