Ancient Eyes

My acnient eyes
see beneath the lie
others would deny.

They're so silky,
smooth and milky...
the hands of the guilty.

A tender touch,
they care so much,
and use us for a crutch.

They steal our trust,
leave bitter musk...
“love” done unto dust.

Imagine ancient eyes
old enough to die
in one so young as I.

They see to the core,
behind closed doors,
the heart's silent war.
