by Broken Angel

Green eyes
     as hard and as brittle as diamonds
  I read in them
       a dangerous reflection of pain
 something frayed at the edges
 held together by a thin veneer of self-control
Haunted eyes
   memories lurking just beneath the surface
like the sorrowful, wailing spirits
        of half-remembered ghosts.
What lies in the shadows of a soul destroyed?
     What dangerous coldness -
 what death waits for the hunted?
As you look through eyes
           too blind to see
and watch the world shatter under their hands -
                      what can you do?
                      what desperate measures?
As you hurl your broken body
         into the light
revealing scars from unimaginable pain
      it is discovered.
           and I weep
 that I never saw it before.
               -Broken Angel
