Soft eyes
Gentle eyes
The only part that are human

Out of place
Lost in a face
Composed of unjaded hatred

They betray you
And expose you
Let me know your real

Its hard to believe
When everything I see
Is hard and cold and evil

The way you look
The way you act
You love to be despised

Its all you get
I'm surprised yet
That you have such beautiful eyes

The eyes of someone
Who's been through a lot
Who's made it through the fire

You're the fire now
You're vicious and proud
But you'll always have soft gentle eyes
I wrote this a while back when I saw a picture that gave me this inspiration. The inspiration is embarrassing... but I like the poem regardless.

Ahahahaha, that artist's comment is quite cute - now why would it be embarrassing? We are all driven and inspired by such different things! The darker structure of the poem, though, does make me wonder - it must be terribly fascinating! It must have been alluring, to look so cold but feel so beautiful.

it was a pretty silly picture xD I think I was putting more depth into it than it could've ever held, but really, that's true of a lot of things in life.

:giggle: Would you happen to remember what it was, or is it too embarrassing to recall? ;D Hmm, I suppose, but it is a matter of perspective! :D
