    These are the faces I never want to forget...
    They elude my mind like a far but
    very present sore at the
    back of my scaled vision.
    I beg for the scales to be lifted so
    I may finally see truth.
    That perhaps,
    in suffering these faces find peace.
    That their ashen skin may be a facade for the
    oil annointed souls that live within.

    Their tears form pools around my feet.
    They dampen my toes drowning them
    in warm waters of stories untold.
    These are the faces i cannot forget.

    Their small hands reach out
    craving for a single touch,
    rough and hard and fearful
    still they yearn.

    A line of 'eye-water' traces a harsh line
    on my watching soul.
