Eyeless You

Give your eyes to me
as you will, eventually.
Surrender…
Surrender…

Raise the white banner
and surrender
and surrender it all
onto me.

Give your sighs to me
as you will, willingly.
Not so tender…
Not so tender…

Raise the white banner
with a canticle
the canticle of misery
and say it with me:

“You took my sight from me
without a moment’s mercy –
Pretender!
Pretender!”

…as if you needed eyes to see.

(You are someone else’s dysfunctional martyr.)
