Your Blind Eye
I may look strong, but I am weak
I stand out brave, but am very meek
I may look confident, but I’ve got nerves
I may look lovely, yet a hatred lurks.
I am friendly, and still possess enmity
Loyalty on face, in heart also dwells disloyalty.
I look calm and at peace, yet rage is fought
I pretend I don’t care, but I do – a lot!
You see what I want to be
And what I am- not!
You believe I am perfect
As loyal as a robot.
Yet I try to battle
The latter to win the former
And you can’t even see how I strive
To be a good performer.
Tears run easy , round my cheeks
Heart bursts out, emotion leaks.
Wipe them out and give a smile-fake!
When inside, tears form a lake.
Yet you are deceived
By the bogus smile
The lack of understanding,
Separates us a mile.
You don’t seem to notice
The painful silent tears
Or the agony that I take
Which all the heart bears.
I am a constant listener
To your tales of distress
And when I undergo the same
You never seem to care less.
It's tough lending a sympathetic ear
When I don’t get a shoulder to lean
Never the heart found comfort in you
And never was warmness ever seen.
