Sad Eyes - A Short Story


Sad Eyes

by Meg Sechrest

I once met a man who didn't know himself,

His actions were unkind.

The loss inside himself was love,

yet he continued his search for

more.

He was begging and pleading

for deeper connection;

His soul cried out,

But his heart stayed buried,

deep,

where no on could find it.

Until a savior came, a rescuer,

to redeem him from his torment.

But he kicked and fought against

the redemption.

He stayed wrapped in his torment,

comfortable a little while longer,

without a smile to grace his face,

looking at his objectifiers with

sad eyes.
