Eyes Open...

Eyes open,
darkness persists
deep, impenetrable, embracing me
I’m wrapped in its fear, hate stares out
sublime, tense, unnerving
waiting…
Eyes closed,
your expression becomes clear
hatred flows through
smiles follow pain as I break
hands close, fist shape.
Like a flame pain consumes me
despair overwhelms me.
Eyes open,
shadows endure
pulling me in, dragging me down
there to stay, comfort, soothing
numb in the gloom, free from thought
hurt waits for me to wake from the dream.
Eyes closed,
a finger traces my cheek
tears don’t fall, they stay hidden
taunting you, transfixing me
crushing from within,
My eyes open.

Eyes Open...
