I know my eyes give it all away,
They are insistent upon telling you what my mouth will not say
My smile makes a failed attempt to cover up the pain
My eyes silently scream for your warmth in my downpour of emotional rain.
Avoiding eye contact at all cost
fearful you will see how really, I am still lost.
When you look in my eyes, I will become transparent
When you look in my eyes, my thinking becomes coherent
The water in my eyes becomes heavy as I watch you study my face
It is clear to see, I still hold you in a special place.
Though my eyes are pleading for your affection,
My brain reminds me of how my heart received little attention.
With this thought in mind and a tear coming from the inner corner of my eye,
I, for the last time will leave with a quiet "Goodbye"
