Her shadow Washed in sin, covered in blood Oh, what a sad little dove Festering secrets, slathered in shame Purity poisoned, life to blame Born unwanted, a mother denies Behind the shadow of our eyes
His shadow In dynamics Of dysfunctional dismay Lost in secret family shame These emotional contacts delay That we carry 'til the end of our days Cast in stone, in foundation of lies All these shadows behind our eyes
Her pain Painful memories of long ago Though, I know, I must let go Triggers upon the aching scars That burns within an injured heart Full of fear, in the wake of lies All behind the shadow of our eyes
His pain An unending twitch The fast fading smile The ever bleeding heart Of a broken lost child Carrying stones up endless hills All these issue we're forced to feel And stuff them down, way down inside Behind the shadow of our eyes
Her darkness Hidden is a blacken variant Attached with unbreakable sealant Of life's destiny, from the gods Concealed amid, evolved facades A mind, compartmentalized Behind the shadow of our eyes
His darkness** Desensitized to life, empathy left poor Bottomless abyss where my spirit now soars Love is a dream in my abandoned role The pieces won't fit my wandering soul....
The window to a soul hides Behind the Shadow of our Eyes
