Eyes betray inner thoughts
Buried deep within.
You admit not
To yourself.
But I see it in your eyes.

Pain locked away.
Hurt never spoken of.
Nightmares and tears with
No comfort provided.
Dying dreams.
Normalcy suffocating.

You’ve locked it away.
And wear a smile
To extremes.

But, when I look into your eyes,
I am the first who truly sees.
And Pandora’s box

I looked into your eyes,
And I saw not the color,
Or the contact lenses,
But the hidden soul.
