When your mind closes down, how can you possibly see?

My mind peels open, finger tips

Open and bare and I smile.

No one will see these scars of emptiness,

lying in mind's worth.

I have no worth.

They speak no sense and yet I watch my mind crackle underneath

my skin feels wrong. My face is weak,

overpowered and emotion.

You can see something else.

I know exactly where the trigger goes.

Enough to set me off.

And now let us go.

Mind peeling.

Skin fading to white and so I lay blank

Naked to the bone.

A Pulse lingers near me.

I am distanced.

You can see.

Through shaking eyes.

I know you can see.
