Windows of the soul?

Poetry By: ScarletStars

What exactly is, the window to the soul?

They say the eyes are the windows to the soul.

Everyone keeps saying,

If we look into each other's eyes,

We'll understand,

We'll know everything.

And I agreed.
At least I used to.

Because whenever I hear that,

I think of everybody I know.

I've always find eyes fascinating.

How different everybody's eyes were,

The color, the shape,

No one has the same pair.

Whenever I talk to someone,

I look straight into their eyes.

For a while I believed,

That I knew them.

But that changed.

I grew up and I learned,

I see differently now.

All the people I thought I knew,

All the stories I thought I understood,

I never really did.

I've been deceived.

Liars. People are liars.

Their eyes tell lies the lips dare not speak.

I used to see others and I look into their eyes,

To see whom they are.

But they betrayed me.

Those who look kind and gentle,

Turned out to be sinister and sly.

I do not trust now,

What looks seem to tell.

They say the eyes are the windows to the soul.

But I beg to differ.
