Darkened - Poem by Eli Unknown

on a set of blue eyes
mine become brown
a once healthy sky
my smile quickly fades into a new frown

there is no sense in bleeding on you here
the message transmitted is all too clear
and when i say my prayers tonight
and these tears i press to fight

not letting go of your image tattooed in my mind
spilling into pieces of my soul
using your eyes to see - as i am blind
grabbing on to just - not let go

so where to from here
gimme a moment to attach my gear
when nothing seems crystal clear
things are NOT as they appear

MY ass!

your darkened soul has has left its mark
an ink stain that will not fade
onto this trail that i now embark
in my heart - such games you played....

my weakness lied in your blue eyes
you lied - through your teeth
and my eyes cried hard and loud
and i thought this was more than just make believe

convincing my mother to be proud
of giving you my MAM-MAWs wedding ring
melted to a perfect size six
and i am the one who got hit...

straight to the dome
and my mouth begins to satiate
as i remember the likes of you
like Bob Marley said- 'I've got to push on through'

darkened like a cloud over my home
free pastures i now choose to roam
once upon a time there was a you and me
it became we
wailing into the darkened sky.
shhhh do not question why.
close your eyes
good night
