poetry by j matthew waters

no consequence of the word

I’m losing my eyesight
it’s been a slow process
transpiring since
the day I was born
a genetic reality passed on
by nobody’s fault of their own

as a lesser prophet
my visions are my voice
and whether or not
you like what I say
the darkening of my peripheral
has no consequence of the word

  1. It is terrible thing to feel your eyesight getting dimmer. To suddenly realize that you can’t read books as clearly as you used to. Well-expressed in this poem.
