When The Gaze Confesses What The Mouth Belies - Poem by Sean Godley

I’d love to know the dream that brushes eyes,
And lends that briefest flicker of truth repressed,
When the gaze confesses what the mouth belies.

Where sighs at final beds have turned to cries,
As sorrows there will never be expressed,
I’d love to know the dream that brushes eyes.

It thunders loud through taciturn goodbyes,
Kisses missed and wishes are undressed
When the gaze confesses what the mouth belies.

As passion craves and rationale denies,
When woeful faces fix on pleas professed,
I’d love to know the dream that brushes eyes.

There’s daylight or darkness behind those cloudy skies,
And cold eclipses make our thoughts near-guessed,
When the gaze confesses what the mouth belies.

Guilt observes the colours that pitying dyes,
And as I try to fathom those redressed,
I’d love to know the dream that brushes eyes
When the gaze confesses what the mouth belies.
