Eyes

When you look into my eyes,

what do you see?

The debris from all the tragedy?

Thats only part of me.

Like a detainee,

I’m trapped inside.

Denied feelings of happiness,

only a slight will to survive.

I’m only here

because,

I plea

for sanity.

For my mind to not take over me

with negativity

to give me dignity

to fight another day.

Strength, not captivity

Ability, not anxiety .

I want to write words that need

to be heard, without them getting

blurred.

Let me transfer the good

for all that are misunderstood.

I want to RISE

Thats what I want you to see

when you look into my eyes.

Published

Glue

I am a lost soul glued to an immobile shadow

Eye always closed

If I open them, its a horror I only know.

The sweet smell of roses

splashed with blood.

It’s enough to loose my fading wit.

I will never move on

It stays with me like

skin to bone.
