See In The Eyes

Ehsan Sehgal

My madness
See in the eyes
My love's truth
See in the eyes
Words are words
Can be the lie
The wounds of the heart
See in the eyes
Outward appearances
Are not of the inside
Mourning of the death
Of the life
See in the eyes
Do not look
The false smile
On the face
The aging of the hope
See in the eyes
Exists no shame
And disappear emotions
The wonder in eye
See in the eyes
Helpless words
In this event
The shame of defeat,
See in the eyes.
