When Yelling Eyes Go Unheard.
His eyes yelled for help
but he got nothing more
than nice smiles and compliments—
because no one ever heard.
Now, the live coal has gone
No one will ever know
why he chose to douse it
by landing on the oceans floor.

About When Yelling Eyes Go Unheard.
The poem is dark one which is a reflection of our society. We are too busy with social media and our day to day lives to notice when things go wrong.
Some people are struggling to stay alive but they never speak. Many people are depressed yet pretend to be okay but no matter how they try to cover it up, eyes don’t lie.
Someone said that the eyes are the windows to the soul. Sometimes, all it takes is a look into someone’s eyes to understand the pain and reach out.
That’s what the poem is about. It’s about someone trying to communicate but no one understands. He puts an end to his misery by drowning.
When yelling eyes go unheard, most times, suicide is what comes next.

You are an amazing writer! I also loved that you had the option to listen to it as well not just read!

This is so beautiful. I love hearing the poem along with reading it.
I like how you compare the eyes with live coal and later being doused. A great image.
Beautiful piece and very emotional. Keep up on writing more original poems!
Very symbolic piece. Love that you are addressing such a huge issue of depression and suicide.
This is so beautiful. so heartwhelming, i felt every word.
Wow that is dark, deep, symbolic and little scary to be honest, but I think all good poetry is, and should be.
Definitely need change in our society! We need to be more aware & have concern for others above ourselves
Wow so profound and a bit scary I must say but true. We all need to slow down and REALLY see those around us.
I love reading poems and this poem is very real beacuse we are so busy in our daily lives that often these screams for help go unheard.
