Angry Stare

Your eyes are hollow and distant.

I can see them filling

Misty and teary

I can read their story

Between the lines of their glare

In black and white they stare


Your eyes balls stay still

Without a flicker

The eye lashes stand tall

I feel the fire of anger


Your nose points straight

Like the pointing finger

Accusing a minger


It seems I am a stranger

From a world up yonder

Not the person of your heart’s desire

The one you told to love for ever

Free at last

She runs as far as her mind can take
She digs far deep into her memory
In search of the good times they shared
It is dark and bleak, cold and icy
Her heart feels heavy at every beat

She runs away from the sound of his voice
Her feet feel heavy with every step
The light fades with every step she takes
She cannot remember the last time he laughed
The man she once loved with all her heart
Is now a stranger is all she can see

The stars twinkle in the sky
They sparkle straight into her heart
Her teeth sparkle as she smiles
Tears trickle down her cheek
She knows they are tears of joy
She is free at last from his grip
