closed eyes

I don’t know
What went wrong
That dark night
When miserable minute hand
Tick-tock-ed as it saw the very
First tear roll down my cheek.

I don’t know
How it all slipped
Right out of my hands
Like sand slips
Out of tightly shut
Firmly held fists.

I don’t know,
How it happened,
Why it happened,
When it happened,
What happened.
I don’t know.

I just don’t.
I don’t know.
