Eyes of water

December 11, 2015 Abstract, Art, Poetry 0

by Lilly Baxley

You draw the clouds and rains of tears

I see in your eyes a strengthening of fears

your tired and weak and yearning for love

Closed behind stone walls because of what they’ve done.

You’re sick of being left behind

and never being treated right

so you’d rather be left alone

but how do you survive the nights?

Crying yourself to sleep is not the way that it should be

behind eyes of water, the moon you can not clearly see

But I will sing you to sleep, I will lay by your side

I will calm your pain for now so you can endure the night.
