Eyes that hear
Updated: Jan 30, 2021
By Aarthy Iyengar
The importance of therapy is felt when one feels that no one around
really understands what they mean. Therapy gifts one with 'Eyes
that hear" ,that are trained for listening, that look beyond without
These eyes are passionate wanderers.
Soft, innocent, disappointed,
red, swollen, sunken,
looking back and forth for
the other, pair of eyes.
The ones that may neither doubt,
nor judge but just listen and
take me toward calm.
'Round me are 'eyes' that are stuck
in their sockets, refusing to look beyond.
A lookout for the ones
that understand my vantage point.
For now I am encaged,
not behind iron rods but
glassy walls of hope.
Eyes that hear are in need,
until, these eyes shall helplessly
wander back and forth.
