It Happens

Title:Might As Well Be Blind


Why won't anyone look me in the eyes anymore?
They call it staring.
I know them
that won't allow me to gaze
into their gateways.
The ones I love-even them-they say I'm so ---
but I'm not.
Just because I want to see them for once, instead of looking through their smiles and
laughs and cries and
their outfit
and all...


Why won't anyone look me in the eyes anymore?
With all this confusion and mistrust and failure
of progression,
I just want someone who will let me look and see something true. One thing or
something that can't be
denied.

wow, I love this! I write stories and don't usually like poetry- so i guess I'm not really one to give my opinion on a poem- but this was one of those few poems that spoke to me and made me feel soemthing, and didn't seem like a jumble of big words. Great job!!
