the tears in her eyes

Updated on August 17, 2012

The tears in her eyes...

were'nt enough

to tell you that she was hurting

on stubby legs

barely standing

soul escaping.

her moon lite smile

it wasn't enough

for you to be so certain

that shadowed around her

was the velvet

of desperation's final curtain

she begged for you

and held on so long

barely able to swallow

the chokes and cries

and alibis

that she was forced to follow

was it her constance that kept her

hidden in your dark

and when the light fell from you

and shined on her

no wonder her pale face was such a shock

you kept your own up far too long

to be able to see her fall

steady woman

turned little girl

as your ivy climbed the wall

so fragile

so small

little baby doll

with hanging head

and sorrowed arms

no wonder shed risk it all

to get away and cut the thickness

of the life you've selfishly lived

that's surrounded her own

and choked her spirit

I'm sure you know...somewhere within

that you've beaten down a stallion

who once was fierce and strong

and beautiful and majestic

who'd run and run

all day long

but now broken barely breathing

she rocks in corners...lays in beds

wondering if one day she can escape

to keep nocturns instead.

      Beautifully written and your words evoke such sad emotion. I am deeply moved. I hit many buttons on this great poem.
