I see the mirage of happiness in your eyes
You’ve got that smile plastered across your lies.
Who are you really? What is it that you fear?
You’re hurting like a wounded deer.
You’ve even polluted your veins
Please. What are you going to gain?
Your voice augurs spring
So why do your words cling
To the brink of life?
A single touch and you’re in chains; but it’s already in vain.
Your face betrays your voice and shows your mental pain
But why? Let me see what your heart contains.
I can hear your heart pleading
Constantly depleting the cheerful you.
The colour of your face drastically becomes duller
As if it’s been eaten away
Maybe even beaten by the colour of day.
Don’t close your eyes; don’t doze away.
Don’t tell me the present; let me dwell on the past.
I refuse to see you; not when you’re in this state.
Just how could you take the bait?
You’ve worked hard secretly
Carrying the weight of sadness
For when I meet you at the gate.
