I saw it in her Eyes

    I saw it in her Eyes

    I saw it in her eyes the fear deep within
    Reliving all her pain again and again
    Seared into her memory an everlasting dream
    Things that frightened things that made her scream
    I saw it in her eyes tears as black as coal
    Darkened by her torment freezing her very soul
    Her cries went unheard her voice but a whisper
    No one would care no one would miss her
    I saw it in her eyes bleeding and broken
    A small shattered heart words could not be spoken
    Body wracked with pain trembling lips of blue
    She would hide within as if no one knew
    I saw it in her eyes a shy little girl
    Felt so unloved so alone in the world
    Afraid to reach out trusting no one
    Didn’t want to move felt her life was done
    I saw it in her eyes hunger that she felt
    Thirsting of her soul lower her spirit knelt
    Hands upon her face covering up her shame
    Only way to survive is thinking it’s a game
    I saw it in her eyes one day she will be free
    Broken heart will mend all of her pain will flee
    Will be no more abuse rescued from above
    A man from far away a man to give her love

    Beautiful. The same kind of pain I saw in every one of my foster brothers and sisters growing up. Wonderfully expressed.

    Very deep meaning, very feeling poem. Well done.

    Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
