The Aftermath

Eyes in the darkness

I strain to see

Eyes softly searching

I feel weak

Eyes closed forever

I can’t breathe

Eyes alone together

I need sleep

Eyes peer too deeply

I can’t know

Eyes try to greet me

I can’t go

Eyes fill with wonder

I might hide

Eyes fill with hatred

I can’t abide

Eyes of sympathy

I am ashamed

Eyes cry with me

I am pain

Eyes search horizons

I can’t reach

Eyes search reflections

I’m not me

Eyes of compassion

I don’t need

Eyes in the darkness

I can’t see
