Judging eyes

Judging eyes

A Poem by Justin Street

Step after step
I hear pain in my cries
So long have I wept
Away from judging eyes

They prick and poke
Chip your heart with lies
Until now I never spoke
Watch my knuckles fly

Their blood is cold
From a heart that pumps ice
This argument is old
But my cuts are precise

To you your heart fed
I’m sorry that it’s not warm
I must leave you dead
I see your judging eyes scorn

A lot of imagery and emotion in a relatively short poem! The third stanza is my favorite! Speaking with your fists, great metaphor!

This is an interesting piece. I like the way that even though you didn't say anything too directly, I understood all that was happening the whole way through. It was a good rhyme/flow, too. Good job.

Judging eyes can be cruel, i would say are always cruel .. we don't like that feeling of being judged.
This is a poem of metaphors it seems ..

To you your heart fed
I’m sorry that it’s not warm
I must leave you dead
I see your judging eyes scorn

Wonderfully written.
