Men lie!
We lie
(often if not well).

Women lie different from their eyes.

They lie different
First their eyes
Then their hearts.
They may lie to their mirror
but never to themselves.

(Only we do that)!

We fear the fear
of failure
and so we keep them
we keep them
and cry Silent

and alone.

(The tears).
