See Not Seen

I see it †  
eyes that look like †  
broken shards of glass †  
an aura the color of ash †
no shadow left to cast †  
a shell of some horror past †  
I know it doesnít mean the heart is dead, but kept purposely un-fed †
having been starved of such things as joy, trust, and love †  
it sustains itself with defiance and self reliance †  
†  
I see it †
because this world is littered with the remains of the broken †  
I donít look away †  
neither should they †  
but I donít make the rules
