Lover's Eyes

Friends always told me not to

Look for myself in another’s eyes

Muddied reflection might just

Bite like bitter fruit 

I know

Might be something to grow you

But bad advice,

Just another vice 

If I could show you how you’ve

Shaped my world

Well, surely I’ve shaped yours

You know no hours,

Yet time is your friend

Your soul is aching

You’re playing pretend

In the dark, I searched for answers

From the heart

That’s not mine

I guess it’s just another 

Way we trade ourselves

For the praise of another

Posed as a lover

It’s just another day, 

Control yourself

If you can fit to the moulding 

Get used to folding


Friends always told me not to

Look for myself in another’s eyes

Muddied reflection might just

Bite like bitter fruit 

I know
