looks of concern

Maybe I will see

even when my eyes are gone

Maybe I will find a way

for the world to enter me

and leave me alone

I’d dream but my head is light
and I fall

I know that now
I cannot be this forever
even if I tried
I’d fail
as would all

Maybe I need to see
through my missing eyes
and light the fire in my heart

All I need is in front of me

Am I damaged?
Am I sane?
Who can tell
If I won’t tell?

Who can know
If I never let them in

I just wanted to see
what is in the mirror first

Someday
I could change

and if I dared
even if my eyes were gone

Maybe I would see again
