    Eyes Struck Blind

    burning pages of metaphors
    the gritty smell of smoke
    taste of ashes left in the brain
    washed down the chasm
    by tidal waves of rain
    burning days youthfully spent
    blissfully unaware as life is left bent
    broken street signs in new haven
    wishing for the rainbow to return/
    and light the fires for the things we need to burn
    walking this road and the one up ahead
    waking up slowly with our memories of the dead
    and of course we wonder
    if god still breathes
    the notion of grass and the blowing of leaves
    each lifetime a childhood we cant leave behind
    as we struggle to assimilate
    behind eyes struck blind

    Is this the blindness accrued in leaving behind the perception of youth? The eyes of a child behold wonder in the junkyard, while 'maturation' surveys waste. Great use of those metaphors, by the way! thanks for your 'wise beyond years' writing.

    I have this thing say- that eyes are sewn shut, -or-they havent been washed clean! Apparently, your deep, blessed mind needs no explanation!-This is exactly what t means. You astound me with your mind, as well as your talent! Hats off to you,fellow poet!

    this poem, though short, has always been one of my favorites, which is probably why ive kept it around for the past eight years or so...youre the first to read it too:) thank you so much for all the positive comments, im very pleased at your reaction :)

    In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.
