These Eyes

“These Eyes”, spoken word

if you only knew
the pain these eyes have seen
you’d notice their tears
hear their screams
if we aren’t careful
we become everything we see
and these eyes fight
every day
with all their might
to find some beauty
in every uninvited caress
unwanted duress
every unconscious attempt to oppress
these eyes
that’ve been lied to many times
and in return
have told lies
and watched their victims burn
I wonder how long
they’ll sing their lonely song
before another set of eyes
shows them who they’ve been all along
