Heart’s Fatigue

You think your eyes tell the story of a life no one knows,
yet in just one look into mine, your journey is told in prose,
a story filled with eloquence, beauty and intrigue,
tales filled with strength and allure to hide your heart’s fatigue.

With artistry and elegance your smile must contain,
the sorrow and the tears of a past filled with pain.
Yes, the armor you wear has helped keep you whole,
but your eyes are the tunnel that lead right to your soul.

When you feel my eyes have seen you in all of your truth,
you fear of those moments in question are all the proof,
that the past wounds and scars are not able to heal,
but through your eyes speaks your soul, “that’s just not real.”
