Dark Eyes

A Smile can mask
A thousand truths
Yet cannot conceal
Pain behind your eyes
I look,  I see, I feel

You lie,  “all’s good”
Your doing fine
Hurt too hard to bear
Shake within your voice
I notice and I hear

Muted response
Silence deafens
Spoken fear a waste
Heartbreak, sorrow, grief
The bitterness I taste
