Hurt

How can you see through the pain?

Scars cover your eyes and veil your vision.

                   Now you

                    walk along in shadows —

everything cast in gray.

                    And you

                            stumble along against the throngs,

past the clowns in graphite gowns.

                    While you

                    smile weakly trying to pass,

to move ahead.

    But you

                           can only feel your way along

halls that narrow as walls converge.

                    Until you

                                      … Stop! …

                                                         and be still.

And return to the point

where you once could see.
