You could write a book,
Or hang your emotions to dry by a hook,
But the truth is in the expression of your eyes,
They cannot pretend or create lies.
The silence in your eyes will tell more,
They will tell the tales of the great inner war.
You might use a different ink to write your story,
Perhaps just to cover yourself in glory,
But your eyes, oh!!! Your eyes will tell it all;
From the way you fell, to the way you crawl.
You could make a movie out of your tragedy
And edit out your apathy,
But your eyes, your eyes will never lie,
Because I saw them cry,
I saw them look into the sky,
I saw them scream: “WHY!!! WHY!!!”
Do what you please;
Pretend you lost the keys
Or that your mind is unease.
I know the truth, I saw it in your eyes,
Then and now, day and night; no disguise.
