Ignorance is bliss
Slipping into the silence
she gazes on
taping her eyes open
to witness her world
c r u m b l e
so she can feel the pain
feel the agony of all she has done
and feel their cries as she cowers in her dark dark darker corner.
Her eyes burn
forced open to the toxic air
forced to sting like bleach eating away to her brain
forced to feel like dirty claws gripping at her tender flesh because she is dirty
she is nothing but a monster with so much blood on her hands.
The tears try and form but shy away
afraid of being consumed by the void around her,
so her eyes dry out like her will to fight.
but it's too much for her
too much to see
too much to bare
too much too much too much
so she blinks
and just like that the tears wash away the sheen of negativity
and allow her to see the beauty
of a lovers smile
and a mother's embrace
to see that their pain is not all they are
to see and not to see.
To know it's okay
to take a break from a one-sided reality.
