Blink

Darkness collides with light in a blink-
is it possible to ignore what you see?
can you travel without witnessing your destination?
(blink)
you’ve missed the point
(blink)
stop skipping over the finer details
(blink)
you can control the evil you see
if you wrestle with the light
and receive the pain hiding in the shadows.

ignorance is an eyelid
shut gracefully in a shout of bliss
a noiseless act of defiance
a neglect on the verge of abuse
(blink)
tears flood our sight reservoirs
(blink)
disasters don’t occur when we look away
(blink)
the world is passing away from His/our face-
and we are the blind leading the blind
blink once more and reflect-
the windows to the soul are smeared.
