Those Eyes

Eyes Lies Web

Who are you

I ask

to say that?

To say that

with those eyes.

No words –

a look, one look,

and that’s

ENOUGH.Eyes Lies WebYour words stroke gently,

curl my toes.

but eyes despise

and can’t disguise:

those words are

LIES.Eyes Lies WebA fortress of PRETENCE.

I don’t have a DEFENCE.Eyes Lies WebHow to seek

the truth

when all appears

to be FINE?Eyes Lies WebI glare

and tear

myself AWAY.Eyes Lies WebI turn my back.

No more talk.

I walk


to find some eyes

to match

the words

I hear.
