She hid behind her eyes,
as they opened wide there fell away her disguise,
her eyes were dark,
as dark as a raven.
But underneath them was the spirit of a hummingbird.
One would look into her eyes
and ,if looked straight into their depths,
saw nothing but flickers of light.
Joyful was she,
Nothing but a spirit free.
though only if others had that same happy soul,
they'd see through those dark eyes
and would realise --they were only her disguise.
