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.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
