What Lies Beneath

I see you sitting,
All alone,
All that you have done.
The voice inside you
Is getting faint..
Only a few
See you as a saint.
The tears I see
Fall down your cheek,
Leaving a streak;
As the true you
Is set free.
I can see all in what lies beneath
Of all the hate and sorrow,
Under the sheath
Of no tomorrow.
Your glowing eyes 
And sad smile
Open up,
Like a thousand skies
Rescued from a 
War of denial.
I can see all in
What lies beneath.
