Innocent Eyes

the night
burdens us all
forgiveness soon fades
leaving us trapped
in darkness
cries of the heart
can be heard
in a room filled
with silence
no longer afraid
as I’ve seen
a lifetime of hate
masked by sweet lies
I pray for rain
to cleanse my broken soul
oh God let it rain
the tears they fall
one by one
from the sky
no words are needed
the story
has already been told
written by these once
innocent eyes

  1. I love your use of personification here. Tears do write the stories of the pain caused by lies and hate. This really hits home for me and you’ve written it perfectly.
