“Dark Glasses” a poem for survivors of domestic violence written by Nancy Seaman

Dark Glasses

She always wear dark glasses.
A fashion statement? No!!
Those glasses hide
the blackened eyes,
the broken heart,
the pain deep in her soul.

Behind those tinted glasses,
She can hide the trail of tears,
cloak her shame,
escape the blame,
conceal her deepest fears.

Dark glasses are her armor
to avoid judgmental eyes
of those who just might question
if abuse is what she hides.

For if our eyes are truly
the windows to our soul
then they must now be shaded
or her secret will be told.
