Free Verse – Crying Eyes

Dark dreams;
man’s heart
poisoned. Spit
a work of art.

No defence;
retaliation
Countermanded
at demonstration.

Crying eyes;
repeated lies.
No surprise;
we demonise.

Speak of truth
or speak of pain;
misspent youth
never the same.

Rotten through,
your core is vile;
cannot swallow
the taste of bile.

Crying eyes;
repeated lies.
No surprise;
we demonise.

Not yet forgotten,
but left behind;
the jail we rot in
is in our mind.

Now disappear,
into the night
and take with you
your tainted light.

I cannot see,
nor do I want
to have you near me
your presence haunts.

Your crying eyes;
repeating lies,
with no surprise.

It’s over.
