Into Your Eyes - Poem by Hannah Torres
I do not know how I would be able to look you in the eyes and say that it's ok.
When really it's not.
It's like being shot and saying it did not hurt.
When to be honest it hurt worst then you could imagine.
It felt like I was dying but being forced to live.
My body ached from the inside.
Little to no expression on my face.
Hands shaking like someone who can't use his hands.
Have you ever lost someone you loved?
Do you remember how that felt?
It would have been much easier for one of us to die.
So that every time I saw your face I did not have to continue to die over and over again.
Maybe if someone died the pain would go away.
Maybe I would be able to smile for real again.
Maybe I would learn to love again.
But nobody is dead,
Life has to go on.
I have to learn to love again.
I have to find the strength to keep moving forward.
I have to make things better for me.
I do not know if I would ever be able to look you in the face again but hopefully I can learn to look at myself instead.
