Hollow Eyes

Hollow Eyes

A Poem by danielle_inez

a tribute to my absent father


I feel you staring at me with hollow eyes.

Daring me to unleash all the frustration hidden beyond my recognition

My face, you refuse to recognize.

A whole half of me wasted by your absence

Your side of me hardly exists.

You made me, only to shame me

I feel you looking, your thoughts chasing

Denial granted to a heart that refuses to account for what it loses

Afather to a few, but me you fathered less.

Taking no interest in filling the hole you left, or the promises you never kept

A hero to only those of whom you chose to never neglect

You know I’m here, but the fear you choose has blinded you

 I have seen you for you

Out of sight, so out of mind

Purposeless to stay distant from me, a coward to hide

When I will always feel you staring with your hollow eyes
