Behind Shadowed Eyes

Behind shadowed eyes a waterfall weeps
Insomnia rises from lack of sleep
A river runs into an ocean so deep
Avalanches slide down mountains so steep

Behind shadowed eyes a message is read
Interpreted singularly from what was said
Anger bubbles; could those eyes flash blood red?
Or harness emotion; pulled back securely to the head

Behind shadowed eyes a soul desperately cries
A bird caught in a storm chaotically flies
Children with scars alone helplessly die
Poisoned minds concoct the lastest black lie

Behind shadowed eyes infection resides
The identity withdraws; in terror hides
Battle rages within; one mind chooses sides
As inner and outer torn apart now divide

Behind shadowed eyes deadly secrets are lured
Stained memories reminding of previous battles endured
The bloody gashes here paining shall never be cured
Scarring a soul once innocent and pure
