See a drop of blood darken the snow
Stare at a blinking light for hours
Sit by the phone that never rings
Stow away all the boxes
Build a home with pillars of sawdust
Make sure the floor is quicksand
Slap the walls with posters of faith
And then, paint the front door red
Place your hand on the pulsating speaker
Scream as loud as you can 
Submerge yourself in water; hold your breath
Come back gasping for air
Sometimes no matter what you do, it never is enough
Even when you run the hardest and for the longest time, you always come in second
What do you do when the simplest thing is cryptic
When even the most precious reassurances are not enough
Everything around you begins to sway 
And you hear a glass shatter in the distance
What happens when the veil lifts?
