Velveteen Eyes

Velveteen eyes
As dishonest 
as glamorous 
 
Refuse to hold
Significance 
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
Original 
You dedicate yourself a queen
 
Seamless illusion
Hard to despise
But it comes easy 
with velveteen eyes
