For today's prompt, write a sight poem. We've already done smell, taste, sound, and touch; so we're tying the sensory poems up today. I'm looking forward to all the sight-related poem.

Here’s my attempt at a Sight Poem:
there are some things you just can't unsee
in scary movies but what's worse are things
you can't see--the nothing that lurks alone
in the darkness & my daughter tells me she's
afraid of black & white television & movies
even if they're happy because of what could
be hiding in the dark places ready to jump
scare everything that you just can't unsee
