Explain to Me

By , Denver, CO
They say the eyes are the gateway to the soul.

Within them, truth resides.
If this is so, I ask you to explain to me, why.


Explain to me why when I look into your eyes-
If feels although I'm looking into a pane of one-way glass...

You can see out


But

I am unable to peer in.

Explain to me, why it is that-

Your eyes no longer gleam with radiance,

They no longer cloud and tear-

No longer do they showcase any emotion.

Explain to me, why, you cannot look into my eyes.
Is it because I've angered you...
Or is it because I manage to still sicken you..?
Is it because I've hurt you...
Or is it because I still retain love for you..?

Please, my love,

Explain to me why when I gaze into your eyes,
I only see a distorted reflection of us,
Of what used to be....
