THE EAGLE

Red splatters the walls, the floors...

The Eagles yellow eyes
His claws tear, his beak rips

His malicious intent present in its speech
His black shadow falls
Its darkness full and everlasting

Leaving no physical mark but
Its evidence in the eyes of the Knowing
Only they can see
Only they recognize the signs

Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder
Pain is in the mind of the sufferer
Invisible and dangerous
It strikes silently
Clouding the mind

It consumes
It feeds
Never backing off
Happiness becomes the past
Anger the present
What of the future?

No one knows
No one can know
No one understands
No one can understand
The inflicted is left alone
Even in the presence of others
All is left behind


Red splatters the walls, the floors
Inside the heart
All becomes dark and painful
In the mind
The world disappears
And the mirrors appear
Self reflected from within
Only the Sufferer can know

What really goes on
Within the mind?
Those who know
Are those long gone
Are those who've suffered the least
Are those who left behind the victims
And traded themselves in
For the hope of something better
A hope never realized

The Knowing are never there to end it
To stop it
To prevent it
To help it
And the future doesn't seem bright
Only the Sufferer knows
Only the Sufferer understands
Only they know what's in the mind
And only the Sufferer knows
When the Eagle will strike

Truly very intense. Most poetry tell s us a story and yours did, however a bit dark & sad in the certain aspect from "the sufferer"...but that is part of your picture, and in real life, the wild is not always nice... (Though I hear bald eagles mate for life -maybe other eagles do & I like the golden too)... YOUR verse was very descript and I like that, it makes for a very good read to me. Thank you for asking me to read & for my opinion. I think you write well. I enjoyed the journey reading the illustration you wrote! I have some talented friends!! Indeed. 'And I do hope to become even better friends.

Very intense and sad. But it is also very strong. That's exactly what a good writer has. The ability to transfer emotions to the reader.
