Empty eyes

empty eyes

Her eyes were empty

Empty as her soul,

blank as the faces of her dolls

Sitting dusty on the shelf.

Devoid of love and feeling;

Devoid of empathy and justice;

Devoid of everything.


Seeking solace in nothingness.

She knows not peace.

But sits empty.

Voided by life and her black heart.

Made bitter by her hatred

everything she grasped at

turned to nothing in her hands.

The hearts she tore out

sit gasping on the wooden floorboards

they will love no more.

Destroyer of love.

of Friendship

her past is now her and she is nothing.

Just a pair of empty eyes.

      Very sad but it is justice. We get back that which we send out in the world.

    You write so eloquently. This person in the poem has dead eyes because her soul is dead, her life left her and everything she cared about, all because of her obsession
