Poor Man's Eyes

Poor Man’s Eyes
Lisa A. Williams

I looked into
a poor man’s eyes
where darkness
filled a need
want filled the room
as he sat
in his corner
shutting out the world,
no longer seeing
the child’s smile-
so far from his hell
he couldn’t bear
Life took his body,
riches stole his soul,
living was no answer
so he died-
a little more
 each day.
