my eyes are the windows to my soul
so I keep them covered.
hiding my deepest thoughts and most intimate desires.
damn, if you only knew…
you’d not only gazed into the brown, you’d get lost
so deep, you’d find the pink and
you could speak my words and write my thoughts
into our bible, making them our word.
unable to be hidden behind tinted plastic framed in designer labels.
looking good on the outside,
disguising the ugly truth.
my true self, unknown to you.
withheld from you….
until you muster up the courage to pull back my blinds,
open up my gates,
and stimulate my mind, body,
uncover my soul.
but you chose to pull away, feelings surpassed.
and I chose to
keep on my sunglasses.
