Inspirations: Painting by Fahd AlSaleh

Through those
Beautiful eyes
I can see
Someone who has lived
who has loved, who gave everything
Yet they were betrayed and stabbed
.
I can see someone who at a moment
of pain and sadness
When everyone around was weak
was told to harden, to become a pillar
.
I see someone who has a wealth
of poems, songs and speeches
to say yet as these
words trickle her tongue
There seems to be
No breath to push
them out to the world
.
All that I see is
Sadness
Sorrow
and
Fear
Fear of the past repeating itself
To be left all alone once again
Thus
I see brick walls and steel doors
I can see armour protecting her chest
And a shield covering her sights
Separating her from living
Because if she doesn’t live
She can’t get new wounds
She can’t get hurt
.
I know what I am
Asking for is a lot
.
But all that I want is for you
To put down that shield
Relieve your shoulders
From the weight of that armour
To open those steel doors
.
To let me in
To give me a chance
.
and I promise you
To take care of you always
Listen to everything on your mind
Tend to your wounds, old and new
.
And maybe someday
I’ll be able to see
Happiness
Through those
Beautiful eyes
