"Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it." ~Ferris Bueller


A foggy glass box
Sits behind my eyes
Swirling mist conceals
my soul

Slip your nail under
the latch; prod and pry
Roses flame my cheeks
Smile

But the latch wouldn't
Break for you, I hope
It still won't open
even
for me
........................................
The lid floats open
A sliver too small
To see past the mist

Strain your eyes to see
You want simple, blue
Glinting sapphires?

Strain my eyes inward
To see what I want:
Unique, streaked opal

We want
Stones, Jewels
Do we
Realize
It may be
neither?


The author's comments:
There was a guy I knew who always was trying to figure me out. I was evasive, because I didn't think he would appreciate my character. Then I wondered, what if what I thought was my personality was actually a facade of my real self, who I don't know?
