Hiding behind that smoke, what do those dark brooding eyes reveal?
A mystery you are, an untold story you are trying to conceal.
Disheartened behind that façade, brave you appear to be,
For how long till that disconcerting smile reveal your silent plea?
Memories run deep, memories which you are trying to imprison,
Resurfacing, would alas, be but a reminder of pain without comparison.
Nestled in your mind, deeply has this darkness been anchored,
Waiting maybe for the right ray of light for it to be conquered.
Hiding behind that smoke, those dark brooding eyes are still haunting,
An invocation, an appeal, a silent cry for help are they searching.
