eyelids

i briefly saw my eyelids
2 days ago
I have not slept since then
because painted on my eyelids
and replayed in my brain
are memories
that haunt me.
i exist
somewhere between
life
and
death.
my brain deceives me
it hurts me
it commands me.
i need new paintings
on my eyelids.
i want a paintbrush
to gently
color my eyelids with a story
that is bright.
next time i close my eyes,
if that doesn’t happen
i pray they never open.
