I’ll Shut The Blinds

I wrote this poem a long time ago. I’m surprised I didn’t have this on my old blog. It’s in the book, Moths & Moonlight.

I’ll Shut The Blinds
I’ll shut the blinds
to fall asleep,
unable to keep my eyes awake.
They’re tired
and want to escape,
the endless tears
that blur their vision.
They fall for it every time,
shutting out the pain
hiding from the light,
until the sun
pries them open.
It must be morning.
I’ll shut the blinds.
