A pack of lies

What lies the eyes doth tell?

Much more than the lips
that kiss and sell
a packet of lies
in mouth’s soft curves.

More,
as she lets the tears
brim over the lashes
that in vain
tries to hide her quiver.

What lies
doth the eyes tell,
dear ?

Whatever the ears,
in haste want to hear.
