The mirror to the soul

The emotion behind the smile

The certainty behind a lie

The curtain that shields

The symbol of the heart

The pain in misery

The joy unmasked

The ice that chills

The fire that burns

The loyalty unwavering

The betrayal so open

The tears it carries

The glare it holds

The vulnerability it conceals

The hurt it displays

The terror in shock

The lingering glance

The warmth that flows

The sparkle that glows

The hope it musters

The failure it cannot deny

The life that brims

The dullness it leaves in death

The promise it provides

The heartbreak it suffers

The love that can be shown

The world can be seen

In just the eyes…
