Pain in These Eyes


When you look into someone's eyes, you can see everything.
You see emotions and their journey.
Their heartbreaks and their fears.
Their memories, maybe even eternity.

Now, look into my eyes,
And tell me what you see.
Can you see the darkness,
That lives deep within me?

Can you see the light,
That has faded so dim?
Or how about all my regrets,
And how weak I am?

Can you see my soul,
As it's begging for help?
Or all the loved one's I've lost,
Can you see how I felt?

Can you see all my haunting dreams?
Or all the secrets locked in my heart?
Im trying to put back together this puzzle of life,
Can my eyes tell you how I start?

Can you see the day of my best friend's funeral?
Do you see all the tears that fell from my eyes?
How about all the pain it brought?
Or the way my shoulders shook from how hard I cried?

Can you see all the happiness I wish I could feel?
Or all the visions running through my mind?
What about all the truth I desire?
But can never find.

Can you see the visible lies that have broken my spirit?
And the pain that always seems to find me?
My eyes tell you all of this,
Just take a glance into them, and you will see.

Through my eyes,
I have told you my diary.
Now, look into the eyes of the person next to you,
And tell me what you see.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
