– closed windows –

I should be giving y’all a peek

or two,

just to confirm my earnest heart.

Then again, my curtains give

no view…

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

hurts me.


Will I ever let the light shine into this house again?
