Through My Eyes – Sharon

Through My Eyes – Sharon

Donning my perpetual fury

Preparing for an empty day

My son the only jury

Not even he is able to sway

Confronted with formidable vexation –

Fervour utterly consuming

Not capable of any evasion

Each day sits there – looming.


Blue eyes lit up with joy

That I can’t pretend to share

For I am life’s only toy

Caught in misery’s snare


His life has barely begun

His innocence scarcely there

He wants only to have fun

Instead seeing the pain I bare


A heart broken beyond restoration

Wrists ensnared with scars

Yet I am the foundation

Of my son’s potential memoirs


A life so young yet filled with lies

“Did the cat scratch you mummy?” He enquires

The answer for which I agonize

Another lie added to my smouldering fires


An aberration of tears caress his cheeks

Analogous to the canvas of my pain

Wiping his tears, my soul shrieks

But I can’t end depression’s reign
