    Inspiration: Let's just say... "family bonding".

    dotsQuarrel of the Mountainsdots

    Like a mountain at its peaks
    And Lizzy on the top of the world,
    It speaks, how it speaks to me
    Not the devilish tears from your mouth
    The opaque sunlight streaming through your eyes
    And the winged bats lingering around your forehead
    Sighing, screeching, and wailing

    What I hear is not your voice
    Nor the trilling melody of the birds
    Nor the crashing tides of the waterfall
    Nor the beastly gasps of the wind

    But like a mountain at its peaks
    And Lizzy on top of the world,
    Your heart, how it speaks to me.

    Now I know your true self.

      Hmmmmmm... You use some very dense metaphors here, which I like for your subject, a person who seems inpenetrible, unknowable. they seem to elude to things the reader is not privy to but that only adds to the distance you alude to. Very good.

    I would go through this again and add some punctuation. It seems to me it should read slower, like the pealing away of layers.

    Also, maybe break a few of the longer lines up. Use the "half-comma" pause that naturaly comes with a line break to your advantage, don't be "bullied" by it.

    As to the last line, I think it might work better without quite so much certainty. Maybe something like:

    "Now I know something of your true self."

    Very good piece,
