slashed open

a life slashed open
for all to gaze upon
a spherical lodging
leaving no corner
only eyelids to hide
behind, darkness
becoming friend
twitching away to
the spasm letting
in the horrid light

craving night to
bring relief
nerves laid bare
vision blurred
horrors seen
in the trap of the
spotlight last in
the mind forever
