Tell the composition of the heart,
The wants, needs, gotta haves,
And can't do withouts.
Pasts, present, and even futures--
Hidden under layers of flawless make-up
Worn by a lonely, fragile Maybelline queen.
Tell the true mold of man, woman, and child,
Whether his or her life is based on
1 lie, 2 lies, many lies
1 truth, 2 truths,
Hidden behind nonchalant, cold eyes,
Telling of true pain suffered.
Tell the soul of you and me, and even the he/she
The beauty/ugly of a soul,
The fullness/emptiness of a soul,
The dreams dreamt, yet not achieved,
The pain that overshadows the never-ending pleasures.
Eyes tell...
