Faces and Masks

You have her face, but not her eyes. 
Fragrant words, but sweetened lies.
All my poems spilled onto your page, 
kept inside more than ink, a quiet rage. 

You have her face, but not her eyes. 
Whispered words and lonely sighs. 
A dream that won't come true, 
sorry to say she isn't you. 

You have her face, but not her eyes. 
A love affair dressed in disguise. 
All my love laid behind her shadow, 
you're the echo the voice couldn't follow. 
I wish you were different and that you'd grow wise, 
you have her face, but not her eyes.
