I've seen your eyes

Swollen and bloodshot

Mascara running freely

Down your rosy cheeks

A tainted hand

Smoothed your tangled hair

Embraced your shaking figure

To soothe you

A hushed voice

Whispered in your ear

Sweet tales of happy endings

Your hope was restored

The same hand

And hushed voice

The soothing tone

The same eyes

Preyed upon your vulnerability

And caught your mouth in his blood red hands

As he whisper vulgar tales

Of murder, lies and rape

I've seen your eyes

Swollen and bloodshot

Mascara stained cheeks

That I once adored.
