There is nothing behind the eyes,
Beauty skin deep,
Dermatologically challenged,
Because there is nothing within.

Feathered adornment, but a show.
Flesh glows with nature’s bounty
With decay in the soul.
Because there is nothing within.

The heart retreats before
The barren touch,
The demeaning gaze of them.
Because they have nothing within.
