You’re my longest eyelash.
The one that curves more than the rest.
You flicked along with my arrogant eyes
And sneered at the world you saw.
You got right into my eye,
Made me wince in pain,
Made me tear up.
I tried and tried in vain
To get you out.
Touched my already sore eye.
As you stayed put,
Until you were just a black speck
In the corner of my eye,
Till you went all the way behind
Watching the sight of the world
That was meant for me to be seen.
Until you come back again,
You silent threat.
Until you flood me up,
You just are.
And I just am.
