Tales in the eyes (I of VI)

Updated: Jan 8, 2021



Tales in the eyes I

Starry nights.

Starry nights.

That's what I see in your eyes.


They never lie.


When we meet each other,

I gaze into those eyes

Because they tell me the truth.


You're not a liar. I know that much.

But you're a hider. Most of us are.


So I look deeply into your eyes,

Past the tears if there are any,

Past the smile that distracts,

Past the fear in my own heart


Into the

Starry nights.

That's what I see in your eyes.
