Through Solemn eyes

Written by: Yara Rouhana

Through solemn eyes, sway sadness 
of a heart, hurt, and a fading hue.
Diving within, dying drollness  
lingers long with a lifeless queue 
of stained crystals that shatter the spark
once mastered a merry soul  
now a damp, drained, dark 
humiliated honor in a self hollow… 
Tired of being tainted by turmoil
for past years; purity plunges in pleas 
it sinks within so deep in soil 
of tormented shores, seas of tears…
Yet through years of yearning
and tears of torments through hiding 
a breeze has brought belonging
to the swaying sadness of solemn eyes…
