Where the Eyes may lie
« on: April 08, 2009, 11:49:12 AM »
Fool, I am, unsafe
and loud, when faced
by loveliness, whose shine
creates these shadows,
which appear to be
the x-rays of the horrid side of me.

If it were possible, I'd hide
behind a mask
whcih has no holes for eyes,
because it's so much safer
when there is no one to see.

But here outside, I laugh
at these dramatic  thoughts that wed
these visions
of an overactive head.

For all the time
the me, that chose these roles
is seen, by I.
who merely moves about
so deeply touched by all it finds
that no words need come out.
