you look at me and think you know me. your eyes accept my facade that's grown to perfection.you can't see behind the walls of my skin,you don't see what lurks beneath, you don't want to because you wouldn't like what you saw there.

you only want perfection,
so that is what i give you.
you can't see what you
won't allow your self to.
your eyes can't see the truth in my eyes, it sits there waiting to be noticed, but you just ignor it.

you think you know me, you trust your eyes to tell you the truth, but your eyes see with out seeing, because you can't find what you never look for.

this is beautiful
a lot of people try t o hide themselves from others and wen they want to espose themself to someone that someone doesnt even notice and it hurts..thats what i got from this.
it can have lots of meaning to different people it is really a nice poem
