Tearful Eyes

tearful eyes

Through your sad tearful eyes

I see much squandering of lies,

Sins of oppressive ego and idol pride,

Pushing  you carelessly aside.

I see the mirrored glass reflection,

Shattered shards of your affection

Disconnect between word and action.

Pedestal lights beamed for star attraction.

Through your soft weary eyes

I see you dressed in shadow’s guise

And I know someone just like you

Who feels the same disappointment too

You are hurt by deceits of love,

Your own dreams given a shove.

An empty void has filled the space

Where once young love kept its place.

Through your deep knowing eyes,

I wonder whether you see the prize,

The immense power still vested in you

To walk out of twilight’s hidden view.
