Poem: Hiding a Secret

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

"Little Lies" by Fleetwood Mac


"Hiding a Secret"

No one can tell
by the tone in his voice,
but as she looks in his eyes
she sees a sad story.

It hides
as he tries to look away,
spewing excuses
trying to conceal it from sight.

But she senses,
a deep, dark secret
looming within his soul,
buried beneath the layers
of his words.

"You Lie" by The Band Perry

A person's eyes show joy, sadness, pain and lies. I've read that the eyes are the inner soul. Beautiful poetry.

Lorna Lamon on April 10, 2020:

Eyes are the window to the soul and you cannot hide the truth from someone who knows you well, not unless you do not want to admit the truth to yourself. I love the Fleetwood Mac video - says it all. Another great write Brenda.
