Weary Eyes


These weary eyes
What can they show you
but despair
and disillusionment

These weary eyes
have seen trust break
like a fragile glass
relationships crumble
in the face of betrayal

These weary eyes
see loss and sorrow
yet the well is dry
no sympathy soothes the pain
or washes the heart clean

These weary eyes
long to shut
the door to the world
and see no more
