In Your Eyes

412856026_640I dropped my focus
Left it in the trash
With your definition of me
So one-dimensional
Judgmental in its glance
But I’m not your slave
At least when it matters
Not chained in place
Like a rat on a wheel
Scratching to be heard
To no avail
Because you’re gone
And I shouldn’t care
Pretending you’re still there
When all I have is tears
For the way things were
A miracle of sorts
That I haven’t died
Wrapped up in your sin
Shackled to your ghost
My vision clearing
To reveal what was lost
In your eyes.
