Behind Blue Eyes.

Behind Blue Eyes.

A Poem by +Naomi+
"

...

"
Behind blue eyes, There lies a sea of tears
that has welled up through all these years.
She'll smile and blow him kisses,
but she's dying alone inside.
She's too afraid of seeming weak.

Behind brown eyes, fountains overflow silently.
She hides through dark clothes and bracelets,
hiding her cuts from the world around her.
She's too afraid of being judged.

Behind green eyes, there lies a genius,
through and through.
She sees the world from a different angle
and has kept quiet all these years.
Nothing can stop her tears.
She's too afraid of being misunderstood.

Blue, Brown, Gray, Green..
We all feel misunderstood sometimes.
But we hide it all and keep it locked in tight,
only allowed us to break down alone.

Keep your head held high and be strong.
You'll get through it,
even if it seems only to get worse..
