The Things You Won't See When I Won't Say

You tell me you bet
All guys are the same
Testosterone crazy
Treating girls like a game

You tell me you’ll prove it
With one single test
You cover your face
With a smile surest

You ask if I know
The color of your eyes
I pause at the question
But I don’t need to surmise

Your eyes are twilight
Pale and glowing
Your eyes are violets
On distant hills growing

Your eyes are windows
In cities gleaming
Your eyes are waterfalls
In my mind streaming

Your eyes are flawless
Without effort or preen
The bluest blue
I’ve ever seen

But all I say
Is blue
Because you don’t feel
The same way too
