Mpho Leteng

eyes that lies

you put me through the mangle,

interrogated my mind with quizful smiles

and when you walked away my heart wore a green willow,

i covered my head sadly with a pillow...and cried!

you left me in this vale of tears!

you left me to swim against the tide of my own thoughts

but why did you come in the first place?

i tried to pull you at full tilt

eyes lied...

because you don't really exist!
