I should be giving y’all a peek
just to confirm my earnest heart.
Then again, my curtains give
for I was never earnest from the start.
I try, oh I try,
to look you right square in the eye,
yet shame and shyness make my windows
Pathetically, I just sigh,
for this reality I can’t deny:
the truth within these windows always
Will I ever let the light shine into this house again?
