The Eyeliner Masks

February 27, 2008
By Jessica Brewer, Modesto, CA

The eyeliner masks,
these glass eyes of woe.
I love you,
and you'll never know.

I laugh at your jokes,
and smile at your look.
If we were a movie,
i'd read the book.

So when you look at me,
Tell me what you see.
Just that girl,
Or some form of beauty...

I wish I could read your eyes,
and sort out,
all the love from the lies.

You are the definition,
of the hearts i draw,
On the papers,
I wish the world saw.
