Somber Gaze

Her portrait hangs nicely

Her necklace accentuates her features

She defines beauty 

Confident and stunning

All dressed up on the surface

Suppression of the damage underneath

Mundane minds indulge in its finality

Critical minds question the eyes

Teary and somber

Abstract it is

Messages lie beneath

Seeking opportunities to vocalize reality

Painful and treacherous actuality

Requiring lifetime therapy
