The eyes are a gateway to the soul. If the eyes are broken or lifeless, then it is easy to see that the person in possession of the eyes has been severely hurt.
I wasn’t always so hollow,
Completely broken down and shallow,
With no light in my eyes.
Some people will let out a sigh
Of pity when I describe
My scenario, they think it’s a crime
To be robbed of life and color,
But my hollow eyes appear to be normal to me.
