Cynthia BuhainBaello Poems
The Eyes Are Windows
The eyes are windows of the heart
Wherein transparency will show
A myriad feelings to impart
From where in sadness, tears do flow.
The eyes will say contents of heart
The speech two lovers freely speak,
For Silence eloquently starts
Romance in muted communique.
The eyes are windows of all cares,
Display the sad and wearied soul;
Distant looks and empty stares
Reveal a man who is not whole.
His weak attempts to somehow hide
What's clearly felt and seen-
Will showcase all the stuff inside
Deep secrets of where love had ...
'All is vanity', the wisest man said,
An endless pursuit of fleeting dreams.
A lost flight where Man's desires tread
Nothing is enough, so it seems,
Wealth, fame, and the world's applause-
Blind us from the real worth of things,
When reaching the top reveals it's a loss,
Emptiness so dark, it's overwhelming.
