The Reveal

The Reveal

Eyes averted to shut it down
they are called windows to the soul
and I’m afraid to let you see mine

Seen before, it was rejected
and right now it feels easier
to hide it behind a facade

You meet my gaze you’re not afraid
do you really want to see me?
don’t you know the failures you will find?

I can fill up the space with words
but smiles can’t hide the feelings there
tumult and a need behind my eyes

If you come in there’s no going back
my heart would be laid bare to see
could you handle the truth you find there?
