Brandon Wu // WHEN I CLOSE MY EYES

When I Close My Eyes

All I see

Is Darkness

Yet there is a friendly warmth that is comforting.

 

When I Close My Eyes

I see a barrage of colors.

Swirls of green and yellow,

Spots of blue and orange,

Dabs of red and grey.

 

When I Close My Eyes

I hear the clock ticking,

The whisper of the wind outside,

An owl not far off.

 

When I Close My Eyes

I smell the fresh air,

The fresh pie right out of the oven,

The air freshener in my dad’s car.

 

When I Close My Eyes

I taste the cake I had on my 16th birthday,

The salt from the first time I swallowed seawater,

The hot cocoa after shoveling snow for the whole day.

 

When I Close My Eyes

I feel peace.

I feel uplifted and rejuvenated.

I feel free.
