ShapelessIn Hearts Wake
In Hearts Wake - “Shapeless” (The Judgement) [Ft. Adrian Fitipaldes of Northlane]
I'm not blind, but I need corrective lenses.
One day when I have money I would love to get lasik eye surgery. These days, I’m pretty sure that it’s down to only about $1000 an eye. I probably take my eyesight for granted, judging by the fact that I am disappointed when I wake up every morning to a blaring alarm clock that looks like a shapeless green blob. It might sound totally irrelevant to those of you blessed with better eyesight, but I would just love to wake up one morning and see my alarm clock clearly with my own eyes.
Some days I’ll take a shower later in the day, and only realize I have my contacts in when I can see everything with such vivid clarity. I am used to showering in a shapeless haze. It’s just wonderful to be able to see. And I know that I’m not blind yet, but I am apparently bratty and just want to be able to view the details of the world without corrective lenses. With enough money, is that too much to ask for?
This topic has reminded me of something beautiful I once witnessed. In Boston, I saw an old gay couple. Maybe, in their fifties. One man was blind, and the other was his shepherd. And even though the blind man got caught up in a rug and tripped, his partner caught him. In a world where it seems everybody’s parents are split up, it was nice to see an old couple together, despite what many might consider a disability.
But who knows, I’m just an outside observer. They might have just been friendly companions. Keeping each other company after their divorces. Watch, he wasn’t even blind. He’s an actor and I was on a hidden camera show called Life.
