Backwards Mirrors

Your eyes tell more than your mouth.
Speaking harrowing truths.
Mind meets words.
Deathly adjectives.
Scorning nouns.
Your eyes are backwards mirrors.
Reflecting your each and every thought.
Meaningful pleas for love.
Lust.
Affection.
Not caring which.
Desperate lies fighting my hate.
I can't love you.
Your soul is pure.
Your eyes show it.
Mine tell novels of loathing.
Ignorance.
Two opposite characters,
looking into backwards mirrors.
