I Want to Close My Eyes

You’re hieroglyphics 
splashed against the wall
smeared paint
rocks and dirt 
all crumbling 
into the faint cracks
that only I can trace.

You’re a line of dots and dashes
I can’t decipher you at all
spilt gin
shaky kisses
now trembling
a silhouette in bed
that only I can feel.

You’re beads of brail
all the blind can read
thick frayed rope 
A turned stool
still swinging
a soul and sin eloped
that only I can see ... 

and I want to close my eyes.

    First of all, I love the concept in this piece. The contrasting "only I can see... and I want to close my eyes." Hit me hard. Your imagery is also amazing (I love the reference to hieroglyphics). Thank you so much for your comment on Liquid Tragedy... it really made my day! I haven't come across your work at all on poetrysoup before, but I'll be sure to keep coming back now. =]
