The Eyes C It All - Poem by Tisha Tamisha Campbell

My eyes tell a story of my hearts testimony, it felt like a dream time stood stillbut my eyes saw everything still, the blood splattered walls, the memory stained halls. I was unconscience but my eyes saw it all. The punches the kicks! The make up the shades just to hide the shame but I couldn't find anything to hide the pain. He came in n I hide the man I loved became the man I feared. Those tender arms that once held me close n loved me now crush my very bones. I remember the dark spaces n the tiny creases I remember the thrill of fear n every single tear. I c him coming for me in my mind its like a movie scene but I still feel that cold chill running down my splean. I want to leave I want to b free, I want to b al that I could b! ! My eyes see it al but my mind just won't let it b. I'm so afraid cause no one else can c the fear in my eyes. When he looks at me
