I was told

I was told I am a tattoo permanent storming clouds.

I was told my face is a glittery mask that causes people fearful.

I was told that when my eyes are open, they appear gaunt.

I was told I'm invisible to my imagination.

I was told that if you try to find the forest you would find the city door to my heart.

I was told I was the blue spiral of the present.

I was told I was in deep sleep on Saturday.

I was told in the sunshine a piece of glass will show the lion in March.

I was told in school textbooks my drawings give whispers.

I was told eating too much gives people headaches.

I was told my ears don't have any bees wax, since I listen too much.

I think I was told too much,

if you only knew what they meant.

Though I'm not exactly sure what your poem is about, it does make the reader think about its intent.
