Beauty

The beauty in your eyes
Provides a guise to the lies
Of years denied, the plights, the fights
And I see only your eyes
Like its disguised behind a burqa
So while you profess of your beauty
Hidden are the scars
Of the wars
That your body and mind have been forced to endure

Never too young to understand that your beauty was never in my eyes
But my minds eyes
So with each word that comes from your lips
A quiet whisper
Wisdom of an owl
Voice of a canary
Strength of an eagle
I now see
While we lay in the dark
While the only thing I can see is you
But I can’t see you
And our lips meet
I close my eyes for an even darker darkness
And in that moment right after our lips separate
That’s when I can truly say
You’re beautiful
