If I Close My Eyes

If I close my eyes
I see faces
Tortured souls
Humans
Facing death

If I close my eyes
Their silent screams
Explode
In my ears

If I close my eyes
The lies pierce my heart
The curettes
Shred my soul

If I close my eyes
I feel my heart pound
As their heartbeat
Is snuffed out

If I close my eyes
Blood rushes through my veins
Yet spills from theirs

God have mercy
If I close my eyes…

…and do nothing
