Comments about Eyes Open
My Life's Flame
My Life flashes before my eyes
My breath is a rasping drone
I am blind, for my eyes have been ambushed by tears
My voice comes out as a choking gasp.
And you? What do you do?
You stand there over me
Laughing and laughing, over and over
Until eventually my sobbing stops along with my breath
Everything is silent, everything is black
My life has ended, snuffed out like a candle flame
