Eyes smile, eyes laugh
They say you can see soul in the eyes
I saw yours – and trusted…
That face which shared my pain
Held my hand, cried my tears.
Then the face changed!
The eyes smiled and laughed
I still saw glimpses of the soul
Still sharing my pain
Still holding my hand
This time I clearly saw though
The shiny knife held close to my heart
Ready to stab as soon as my head turned
As it perhaps have been
Which face was my friends?
I keep wondering and wondering
Until it all made sense within
There was only ever one face
Half soul, hidden on smiles and laughs
Fully hidden by lies lived in the soul
Carrying a knife
Covered in the trust of friendship
Covered in the blood of a stabbed friend
