"An eye for an eye"
That's what you said
Before you stole mine

I was born
And then I died

I laughed
And then I cried

We met then
In that lonely field
As I wept for my lost eye

We journeyed long and far
Far and wide
But never did we find
That missing beacon of sight

You left, then

Yet I did not cry

Many, many times
I was forced to wonder...

Why did we create?
Why did we kill?

Why did we build?
Why did we destroy?

Why was that cycle never broken?

Perhaps I will find my answer
In that long-gone eye

A Poem For Lavi

Life is like thunder; powerful, confusing, wonderous, loud, inexplainable, sudden, beautiful in ways you can't even begin to describe, and completely unexpected. Death is like lightning; it strikes even the most powerful things, and shoots through the ground to everyone nearby, leaving them with only a painful aftershock.

Almost dying changes nothing. Dying changes everything.

Cry me a river, build a bridge, and get over it.
