This one might be a bit morbid, but I've never shared it with anyone. I feel like now is the time.

Blessed be,
Q. Gonzales

I can see his eyes

fill with tears

the hazel color

It hurts him, I fear

 

I can see cuts on his skin

the blood slowly oozing out

like maple syrup

or like water from the spout

 

The bruises on his body

the colors:

purple and green

it looks like grass and flowers

just booming in spring

 

the stitches he wears

they're black as the night

other people can't see them

but I can see in the light

 

Other people

can't look at him at all

but I can take pictures

and stare at them with awe
