Beautiful Eyes

This is stylistically different than my usual stuff:

How is it that you have such beautiful eyes, there in the middle of prison?

Because they’re hers, of course.
She wasn’t beautiful at fourteen when that evil came around.
But her eyes were.

A mother, full of smoke and complaints.
And now a daughter, soon to be a mother.
And that bad man, never quite outside the family circle.
Where he should have stayed!

He began to dim the light in those beautiful eyes…before you even went to school.

And now, for you, it’s all about hatred, manipulation, arrogance, cruelty.

First practiced on you, then by you…now something you both practice and watch for no doubt.

Behind the bars…leaving damaged girls behind you.

God help you. Those beautiful eyes are so dark…just gone.
