Unable to See?

Red, yellow, blue, black, white.
unable to see the colors,
unable to see the light.
Black, grey, charcoal, eggshell.
Only those can be seen
What is light without darkness?
Pitter patter. Drip drop.
The rain continues to fall.
He can’t see the difference between
what is light and what is dark.
Tick. . . tock. . . .tick. . .
Listen.
Listen.
Listen.
The world is turning
now
shifting
tumbling
thrashing about
in color
until he’s socked
in life.
But his eyes are closed.
So all he sees is darkness.
What would happen if he just opened
His eyes?
But they are closed.
And opening them means
prying him from a dream,
a nightmare.
Red, yellow, blue, black, white.
All the colors converge together
until there’s only light.
