The Blind

In darkness lies distance that
keeps me from you
but miles are made more manic
in your sleeping state

You rock inside a rolling brain
sifting through snapshots
of days that shower weight
upon your back

Lacking clarity of my own vision
and feeding on bleeding blood
that makes pale, your beauty.
Past pains poisoning -straining
Staining your smiles.

So chemical alliances draw science
into safety – find a haven in a place
that you can rest.

And I am watching you like a
like a gameshow – I sit and truly
scream the answers through your tv set

always hoping that you come up trumps
and win my eyes, the prize that is
yearning to be yours
If only you could see
