Have Ye Ever Smote Thee A Black Eye? - Poem by E.J. Langley

And as I watched
it shed a solitary tear of pure blood
and I knew
I was seeing it's very soul
drip down it's own cheek
into oblivion

The black eye had taken over the face
and it's hatred had spread to every nuance

By now
the eyes themselves were dead
they contained no light

The eyes represented
not life now
but death

And death smiled at them
and wiped the bloody tear
from their tender cheek
