Torn beneath the layers
of smiles and sunshine
A darkness, a cloud
of pain... Dancing, lingering
In her eyes
A sadness reflected from
A life past lived
A love unrequited
A heart half broken

While life and God and hope
are anthems strummed on
The instrument of her heart,
Her mind replays the angst
Of former days
A record skipping, repeating
Lyrics that harmonize
pleasure and pain

So I smile and laugh
And listen
Hoping to meet
The girl behind the eyes

To know the story
Beneath the cover

To feel the wind
Beneath the rain
