My eyes betray
My heart and mind,
They reveal too much.
Others can read me
As an open book
And mock at me,
Pour ridicule
And unclothe me.
Unable to defend
I shed silent tears,
But thus glistened
My eyes reveal all
That is more of me
I intend to hide.
When I close my eyes
I often see me languishing
In make-believe worlds;
I see dreams
That hurt my psyche,
The pleasant I see
Is not pleasing
And the unpleasant
Scare me.
I seek the rare;
I long for
Dreamless sleeps.
