the ravages behind these eyes

shaken inside
broken outside
holding on
control just slips
no tears
no words
frozen yet shattered
the dichotomy confuses
battered inside
unintelligible outside
reasoning lost
darkness slips in
no warmth
no light
trapped yet free
the contradiction comforts
broken inside
unshaken outside
the facade snaps in place
the world reveals nothing
no one sees
no cares to know
the ravages behind these eyes
