Her doe eyes

Her doe eyes, that make her seem so young,

Fill with tears, and I know I put them here

She cries, cries goodbye, as her hands are wrung

as I look on I whisper one thing:

Don't cry, you're tearing down your dreams

She cries some more I turn my back

Her cries turn to sobs, her sobs to screams

I keep on walking without one look back

I try to forget that little girl's song

Bury her under all the ice the stone

That has hardened me, made me strong

But then again how can you rip away

something that is part of you

that keeps clawing its way up, to your dismay

bloodied and broken, still crying and screaming

and making you listen.

How can you forget everything you once were

because of a little pain, you feel like your bitten

Some say you have to, it's how you live

I say I need to, it's worth what I'll miss

but maybe someday I'll return

and give that little doe eyed girl a kiss

whisper one thing:

Don't cry, It's all over again

I loved this poem! :) There's a few parts where the tone of the poem changes, but I liked your rhyme scheme!
