Blink

This poem is the second in the ‘Involuntary’ poetry cycle. The remaining poem in the cycle will be published on INWORDSANDINK soon.

I see everything,
the brightest light on a harsh day
keeping my eyes
squinted,
sharp,
but I see everything,
until my eyes scream.
My lids are forced closed
by the sun’s arms,
stronger than my will.
I fight, my eyes swimming
against the tide
of tears spilt in this war
with light.
I see everything
and then, nothing.
