Lately I’ve been sleeping rather poorly.  when I go to work, I always imagine that my eyes must be tiny slits….I guess it’s not uncommon for teachers to lose a little sleep considering the mayhem that goes on inside a regular classroom.  It’s a touch sad to imagine going back to bed 10 minutes after waking, butttttttttttttt such is life.  I’m sure that’s my secret unless of course someone sees the truth in my eyes…..

———

With a blink the world invades…

colors swim and assault in jagged pulses…

Closed tight….squeezed tight….

shutting out the intruders….

Hiding from the fear….

——–

Thoughts in discord,

dissonance a gentle scream…

but the secrets are hidden so deep…

fathoms deep…

within my hazel depths…

——-

Smiles for the world….

Compassion for others….

A bitter soup for me…

all in my eyes…

hidden in my eyes…

  1. David, wonderful piece. Especially felt connected to this verse below, beautuiful.

    Smiles for the world….

    Compassion for others….

    A bitter soup for me…

    all in my eyes…

    hidden in my eyes…
