It Sees You

It sees you,

Tears to lick off your cheeks.

It sees you,

Holding the leash tight.

It sees you,

Toy fetched in its mouth.

It sees you,

Chained in mud and filth.

It sees you,

Holding a small bowl of food.

It sees you,

Yelling and kicking in anger.

It sees you,

Holding it through the pain.

It sees you,

As its heart stops in the end.

 

It sees you,

And all it wants

Is for you to see them.
