See picture attached. I had it in mind among other things while writing this.


staring blankly ahead
her eyes have given up
surrendered to the dark

her feet are cold and wet
those stones she corssoes
leave tiny scratches and cuts
yet not a sound comes across her lips
her mind is held elsewhere

this nightwalk takes her to a bridge
it’s vast bulk grimy and even
colder than her skin

the stream beyond catches her
empty gaze of blindness

her fragile hands grasp the banister
no regards to the moon as she jumps

there’s no pain as she dies
her body was already numb
the eyes
closed and sold
because there was nothing worth seeing
