An Image lost

I close my eyes and what do i see. Miraculously, I see either two things. One, Memories from long ago fleeting on the edge of a transparent void. Two; I see in hues of black and red.. of Nothingness.

The lost... The pain

You see when we close our eyes briefly. We invoke a memory from long ago or just remembered. That ties emotions. Not only to ourselves but the ones we share these memories with. It's an endless cycle of love , lust or fleeting pain.

Then we have the other side to that coin. Our eyes close. Hues of red and black appear. Our body's cold . Nothingness, like the sounds we could have heard when we had ears. Like a knife trying to whittle a piece of wood. But can't because it's dull. It form never really finished.

To close our eyes briefly is just as hard as forever. "Why"? As I felt blooded tears fall from my eyes. Knowing that time has stopped for you and just slowed down for me.

That's because my eyes closed briefly while you're closed forever.

I don't want to close my eyes.

My brother, I see you.
