The Window

The Window

A Poem by Sunshine Kid

 

If eyes are
The window into
The soul
Then what do
You see
In mine?
Are they ever changing
With every flicker
Of doubt
Or loss
Of hope?
Or do they            
Stay the same
For my soul             
Doesn’t change?
What do you see?                          
Do you see
What you want
To see?
Is that how
This window works?
Or does it
Only show
Truth?
Can I hide
My soul?
Or is it
A full-on
Peepshow
Not letting me
Cover up
My proverbial
Body?
Can I
Manipulate it
So that it shows
What I want
It to
Show?
Or is it
Bullet-proof
Glass
Made to never
Shatter
From the inside
And
Out?
What do you
See
In this
Window?
What am I
Allowing you
To see?
This window
Won’t allow
Me to
See
For
(Apparently)
I already
Know.
What do
You

See?
