the devil in his eyes

by allyson - Gemini

chin up 
shoulders back 
paint your face don't talk back 
if you do
you might find the devil in his eyes.
scary right
one day your laughing together
the next your fighting for life

within a blink the devil rears his ugly head reminding you
you are a piece of
your entire life was put in his hands to do as he pleases

in your sleep the dreams are sweet memories
of a love that use to be
but when you wake a slap across the face helps you remember
that love will never be.

if only I could the thousands of miles it would take to escape the devil in his eyes.
