When the eyes of rage are staring deep into your soul you start to cringe inside. No words have to be spoken, the eyes speak for themselves... ~Peace~

 ~Eyes of Rage~

 She is afraid to see him through his eyes of rage
He has her locked up in his own private cage
Her biggest wish is to someday see the light
The shackles are getting very heavy and tight
She is trying to loosen them with all her might
He took away her younger days by hiding her away
She feels ugly, unintelligent, nothing she does is right
Walking on eggshells was expected in her daily life
The rage held inside of him is fueling his sick mind
Afraid to leave because no one would ever believe
To him she is nothing but a fixture for other’s to see
She prays everyday for the eyes of rage to go away
Never knowing when one day it might really be too late
Maybe a snap ending her life; somedays she wished that to be
Knowing there is a slim chance that she will ever break free

Well expressed, Chessly, but I pray it's not biographical! I can feel the pain, the hopelessness....captivating phrasing..

And we build our own prisons, as all anyone has to do is walk out the door. HOWEVER, we gravitate toward what we're used to because it's familiar... even if it's killing us. Nicely done.

Such a sad and oppressive situation and yet, sadly, not so uncommon in this life/world. Thank you, Chessly. Love and best wishes to you,

This is a powerfully gut-wrenching piece! I know of women living in this space, and in my work I've helped some escape. Many feel that writing about it is their only escape, but there are ways to get out before its too late!

To be prisoner of this controlling sickness is truly sad and I would hope one could get the resources to break free

Reviewed by George Carroll 7/30/2010
Let's hope there is a better solution for this dilemma if it be more than poetry.

Eyes, and the look of eyes can silently, certainly tell the feeling of one. I am a very gentle man, but when angry, my wife would say that she could always tell my feeling, and the extent of my anger, by looking into and at my eyes. Well written, my lady.
Your friend, Mark
