Haunted eyes

Haunted eyes

A Poem by Sugar and Spice

I can see it,

See it in the eyes,

The eyes that stare back from the mirror,

The dark, haunted eyes,

The eyes that have seen too much.

Whether its trauma, or suffering, I’m not too sure,

But it burns deep down,

Right down to the soul,

Is it possible for someone to feel so much pain?

Just peering in creates scars.

Scars that spread,

Spread along tortured skin,

Skin that’s been through too much.

Those eyes, that skin,

It’s easy to see it was beautiful once,

Once, in a time before this,

A time before the pain,

A time before the pain took over,

A time of peace,

A time of love, of laughter.

All of that is gone now,

All that exists is the pain,

It encompasses everything,

Light, love, laughter, all things good and true,

Those eyes hold the truth,

The truth about the dark…

When the eyes are haunted,
when the eyes are clever
when the eyes are wicked..
