Journal 2

No Longer Blind

Carly Davis


Hands twice the size

Once laced in mine

Stretching them apart

Squeezing me numb

Invading the tiny spaces

Of my being.


I pull away

In those old memories

That creep back to me

When my world quiets-

But never because of you.


You lean in

Close your eyes

And I don’t-

It’s clear now

I stopped feeling

Anything for you

Long before I knew.

    “My world quiets- but never because of you.” I like how the hand is used and it allows for there to be the sensation of touch and feel through out. Like when someone leans in.
