Stares

Millions of eyes stare,
But not a pair cares.
She was captured and trapped in a cage,
As the stares slowly ate her away.
The stares­­­­­ await the moment she trips and fails
To glare and compare before they say “what a nightmare”.
The daunting stares laugh and tease,
But the very next second they yell and scream.
From home to school, the stares are there,
Everywhere she goes the stares follow.
As she ate, the stares ate her and slowly but surely they were killing her.
Broken and scared, stuck in a cage,
Tired and frustrated, she cries for help,
But the eyes continue to stare.
The eyes stared as she bathed, as she ate, as she screamed and cried
And finally they stared as she dared to cut.
They stared as the scarlet blood that once raced through her veins, gushed down her wrists.
Her eyes shut in pleasure and gratitude,
To have finally escaped this madness they call life.
They stared at her lifeless body, forever captured in her last moment on the bathroom floor and finally the eyes cared to say,
“If only I had stared”.

    I wish I could like this more than once. I guess I'll just have to read over and over (smiling in the inside about this).

    This is amazing! I really love how you told a (captivating) story through poetry. Truly beautiful and a work of art!
