a sketch

I stared straight at emotion
and I’ve been blind for weeks

because of it.

when my eyes are closed,
everything glows red and purple.
the veins in my eyelids
are white lightning streaks
and they are so brilliant
that I do not sleep at night.

when my eyes are open
the sky is a false black.
false because it is not opaque
like darkness is supposed to be.
this black burns ultraviolently
and my irises feel bleached.

I stared straight at emotion
and I’ve been blind for weeks

but the visions are glorious.
