by Alizeh Khawaja

the things you say
make me look away
my eyes are left to stray
looking for the rights words
for your mouth to say
your hands are the ones
that keep me from running away
and your tongue spills out
nasty news that pierces right through
my ears have no sudden way
to block those words of betrayal
but your eyes speak truth
and bring me back to my youth
