This world is encompassed by

Eyes reaching wide enough to hide

Behind the eyelids that squint as

Fleeting smiles fade from view


Now eyes are closed

Yet they can see the

Tattered seams of undone dreams

Tangled in throats that scream

For someone to listen


But all it yields

Is blood that glistens

Seeping through the tears of skin

Eyes covered in crimson


Forearms tremble as pain within

Drains away

Along with hearts and souls

And those eyes so wide as if their edges are

Reaching to encompass how much you love

This world
