eyes in dark abyss

the eyes dark and distant
cold and untouchable
they’ve seen the heinous
the worst of man
bring not only death
to another but imposing

they severed limbs
but before this
they make them scream
eyes welt with tears
beg for a kind reprieve
but they know never
will they see again
and hold their love ones

the fires of hell
explode wantonly about
the mind and heart
has succumb to
the shards of fear
how long a life time
is a year

the mind has blackened
stored and compartmentalized
what the eyes have seen
even by ones own hand
never to speak of it
to oneself again let alone
to any other 
back at home 

and life trickles by
in minutes and hours
days/nights become indiscernible  
when eyes have entered
in that black abyss
and others can only see
their reflection because
they can’t see in

Welcome Home Soldiers back from Hell
