The deception of perception

Her eyes were the mirror

To a heart guileless and clear

They shone with the radiance

Of absence of malice and fear

Yet they couldn’t see

What was obviously true

Cause they were only too eager

To misconstrue

The absence of guilt and fear

Was seen as sheer arrogance and deception

She had a demeanour as serene

As the calm sea breeze

Yet they saw her as too eager to please

She had a smile that could

Enchant and enrapture the heart

Yet they saw it as artifice

A well cultivated art

Such are the vagaries of the human mind

We choose to colour our perception to see

What we desire or simply turn blind!
