A Façade

Can we truly hide?
From the eyes which
Know us so close
From the hearts that
Hold us dear to each
Beat; or from the
Thoughts which give
Solace and comfort
To us during times
When we need most
For our faces may
Show just a façade
Yet dear eyes which
Search deeper will
Understand; the
Soul is still visible
Through the eyes
Where emotions do
Reside; however we
Try, they can’t lie
Eyes never a façade

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  1. Never indeed! Those masks don’t cover much at all…
    Besides, I have an obsession with eyes anyway! 🙂
    Nicely done, Leo!! Right by the theme!! Thanks for playing…. 🙂

  2. Eyes speak so much! One can see sorrow, happiness, gladness, inspiration or pain within them!
    It is our soul’s window so they say… a facade? Yes! One can’t hide his inner joys and pains, coz it always show in the eyes! I wonder why? 🙁

    Beautiful as always Leo… 🙂
