Blue Eyes

October 22, 2009
There’s something in her eyes
That tells you she’s lost
So much hurt and pain
Love, but at what cost?

Her smile is beautifully broken
And her thoughts well hidden
She pretends to be happy
But to her, joy is forbidden

Once a kind child
Now hardened by life
Impossible for another
To understand her strife

She can withstand the wind
The snow and the rain
But even in sunshine
She can still feel the pain

She knows how well
Her smile can conceal
The pain she tries so hard
To never reveal

But no band aide can heal
Nor make up disguise
The tragedy one finds
Deep in her eyes

seems sad. But the empathy is definitely beautiful. :)

Wow! That was beautifully written. This may be my Twilight obsessed mind talking, but your poem reminds me a lot of New Moon.

Thank you very much! I didn't think about New Moon when I was writting it, but it does kind of have that feel
