Every Face Hides A Secret - Poem by Baru Gobira

Every face hides a secret
The eyelashes bat once in acknowledgement
Shared and yet hidden
Longing to be released
Every face hides a secret
Of a forbidden glance
An unfulfilled desire
A race yet to be run
A thought that will forever remain a thought
Every face hides a secret
The hope in a mystic’s eye
A rope in the hangman’s hand
An eye following feet over cobble stone
Madness, marriages & deserted palaces
Every face hides a secret that must be told.
