Your eyes speak volumes

Your eyes speak volumes short poem

Photo by torbakhopper

You come before me, my dream
As morn comes in all its glory
Smiling, blushing and mesmerizing
Your eyes that hide a thousand feelings
I espy them, read their message
Some dark truth they seem to hold
Veiled in smiles, flashing joy
Yet some pain, some lost joy they reflect
A search for glee, quest for true love they convey
Can’t you read me? They seem to say.
The glum withheld, the pain within.
The sorrows of life, so shrewdly masked.
How long? How long? They seem to ask.
To be veiled and fettered thus!
