The Eyes

You can't fool me with your body language
You can't fool me with your lies
You can't fool me with that confidence
I can see the real you through your eyes.

I see there is more than you let on
I see there is more than you advise
I see there is more than your veneer
I can see there is more through your eyes.

I see a women with confused identity
I see a women who has died
I see a women crying out for significance
I can see it all thorough your eyes.

You wish you were a person who is someone else
You wish you could win affirmation's prize
You wish you knew the answer to 'what is truth'
I can see the pain in your eyes.

But I see a women with beauty within
But I see a women who is lithe
But I see a women luminous
But I see it despite the eyes.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
