Velveteen Eyes

Velveteen eyes
As dishonest 
as glamorous 
Refuse to hold
To all your pride 
Glistening gold
Sweaty crown 
On your head
When all your
Rags abound
Might as well be dead
Simply just a mirror
To all those
Who won't be seen
With nothing else
You dedicate yourself a queen
Seamless illusion
Hard to despise
But it comes easy 
with velveteen eyes
