Suture

This was my entry into a Prose challenge that had to include the line “she couldn’t close her eyes.” My macabre mind went to work immediately and I wrote this haiku in 20 seconds.

Oh, she longed to sleep
But she couldn’t close her eyes
They were stitched open

“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.” ~ Marcel Proust
