Pearl Eyes

Pearl Eyes

Girl with the pearl eyes,

Don’t cry so

You say you are ugly

Because someone said you were

Many moons ago

As I watched you cry, held your hand

I told you I couldn’t understand

How someone could be so beautiful

I then told you a true story:

All mirrors are liars by trade

And every time someone is born

They read their future

Decide what lies to tell them

As they get older

But when the mirrors saw you,

They begged their Master to make you blind

So they would never have to lie to you

Because your beauty was too true

You smiled at me, staring into my soul

With those unseeing pearl eyes

Then you whispered in my ear

Words for only me to hear…

And that’s when I kissed her,

The girl with the pearl eyes.
