Broken Eyes

Broken Eyes

Sun shining through 
My window
Begging me to greet the new day
I just don’t want to 
As sadness envelopes me 
All I want is to hide 
Forget to breathe 
Tears fill my eyes 
Not long ago I would have fought them
Now I just wish they would fall
But they don’t and I know it is 
Because I have

Broken Eyes

I look for a distraction 
Anything to not feel this pain
I turn on the radio 
And I hear Tiffany singing 
“Hear In My Heart”
And it takes me back in time 
In my mind I can hear 
Hayley singing along 
Like she did every time
That song played 
 Two voices blending so beautifully 
You would think that would 
Make me smile 
Such a fond memory 
Instead my heart begins to break 
With the reminder that Hayley is gone
I find myself missing 
My best friend, sister & twin
I don’t want to go on 
As tears well up again
I really wish they would fall 
Yet I know they won’t 
Not from these my

Broken Eyes 

Thirteen years and counting 
Feels like just yesterday
The pain gets worse each and everyday
With that pain
Comes more heartbreak 
Tears that well up but never fall 
Leaving me to wonder 
Will I ever be able to heal my

Broken Eyes

I feel so defeated 
Life keeps going on 
Yet I don’t want it to
A voice in my head says it doesn’t have to
More voices join in 
As they begin to chant 
“Do it”
Over and Over again 
It takes all my strength 
To muster the will 
To keep going on 
I just know though
I have to 
I never want to cause the pain I feel
To anyone else 
So I say a little prayer 
And ask for help from above 
Then I ask him 
While he is at it if he could please
Fix my 

Broken Eyes 

Then maybe I could cry
Wash away some of the pain
Help me find the strength to 
Keep moving on 
Oh what a relief it would be 
If only 
I didn’t have these 

Broken Eyes
