Child’s eyes

Childs eyes

The eyes of a child look upon the world

everything is blurred and scary to her

she feels submerged into a shapeless ocean of red

and her gaze hardens and grows suspicious with time

There’s still some brightness in life

but it lies in the middle of what scares her the most

and she’s thorn between looking for the light and escaping it

as it softly whispers words of promises and true love

that stir her heart and bring warmth to her face

But the fear is greater than any promise

and the children flees the beauty she has glimpsed

retreating behind the walls she has surrounded her heart with
