They stare me down, eternally,
those clear, innocent blue eyes
like a looking glass.
Such a lie those eyes have told;
pain infliction, words
that meant more
than he may ever realize,
nevertheless care about.
Those eyes, such lies,
penetrate my very soul.
Never revealing any signs
of my torture.

Very strong writing! I like that this is a shorter poem. You conveyed so much feeling in just a few words.

Amazing. Words fail me. Just amazing.

Thank you so much! :3 This is basically a first draft, I found it half-finished in my journal from two years ago, and I just recently changed the beginning and completed the poem. I appreciate the feedback! :D
