Hidden Cruelty

Deep hazel, those warm eyes of yours

Sparkle at me, revealing a cosmos

Of thought and emotion

You gaze at me with that soft smile, 

Much like a saint peers down 

At her adoring patrons

It’s like you’re searching for something

In the unknown contours of my face, 

The ocean shining dimly in my eyes

You keep smiling and looking,

Like you don’t know what that does to me

You keep showing me kindness after kindness, 

A bittersweet realization that more

Will never be within my reach

The kindness that glimmers

In your bright eyes and serene smile, 

Is really just a hidden cruelty
