Two Bright Eyes

~13~ Love and Loss

I look at him with two bright eyes

And search for love in his

Instead I see the lies he hides

Of what he really is

I suck the truth deep in my soul

And forget this agony

I love myself so he does not

But now the lie is in me

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Just in case for those who don't understand this poem, it's about a girl who loved a guy so much that even though she knew he didn't love her, she convinced herself that he DID love her... make sense??
