The Words Need to be Kinder

The words
so many

The eye strain

But the words call
not only to be written
but read

How is it
a blind eye can
be bothered so

By certain levels of light
and while reading

Can it be that my eye
even with the blindness of glaucoma
is yet being commanded
to see, to focus

Those words I love
do they not know the pain
they inflict upon me

When will my mind learn
that that eye no longer works
when will my brain
give me a break
bring relief
from this constant aching

Maybe tomorrow
the words will be kinder
