In the dark world
My eyes
Glance upon a light
A hope
A glimmer
Amongst the
Blackening shadows
Itís curious form
Beguiles me
The luminescent orb
Brings pain to my eyes
Yet I cannot refrain
From staring
Colours flash
Shapes emerge and
Infiltrate my sight
The darkness slowly leaves
The light taking over
Brighter it shines
Till it fills my view
Then I realise
It was not that the world was dark
But that my eyes were closed
