Eyes closed to the world open
poetic scribble by Bob Axell 2009

 

Hold your eyelids closed
Tightly
Or you might just see
Something frightening

Something that will stay
With you for the rest of your life
And leave you forever - petrified

Close your eyelids firmly
And let them stay there too
And you will never need
To open them anew

For I swapped your eyeliner
With a tube of superglue
I will never be as blind
To this world as you
