Eyes Open Wide

Eyes Open Wide

By Allie Marie

 

Stuck inside your puzzle box

that you think I can’t figure out

which opens what you are about.

The secret is

one tiny simple thing –

I already know.

Mend me.

Bend me.

Fix me.

Cover me up

in all those bandages

just so they’ll be seen.

You want me

to be able to internalize

your image of bliss –

to pretend to be better off

but I know better

and I know more.
