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.
