Dead eyes…

IMG_5532

“You’re eyes are dead”.

Her lifeless blue eyes flew up to meet his.

“What?”, she said.

“You’re eyes are dead. They used to be so full of life but now there’s nothing left”.

She stared at him in shock.

She stared at him with rage.

She stared at him with hope.

How did he see this when no one else could?

How come no one else could see?

She squeezed them shut

and drew in a bitter breath.

She’d been found out.

It was at once terrifying

and yet necessary.

She was no longer invisible.

X, CK
