Velvet Promise

I watch you through lowered lashes…
A silken curtain of dishonesty,
Hides the pain within my eyes.

I wish I were like you.
Only, that’s not who you really are, is it?
Look at me when I speak to you.
You’re so rude.

You love me, don’t you?
Always love me.
You promised me…
The contract in ink.
On your velvet shoulder.

I touch your velvet skin…
The ink faded to nothingness.
Your eyes.
Blue pools of silence.
And now your soul is naked…
I see the pain within your eyes.
