WHEN I CLOSE MY EYES..

They say the way into a person’s soul is thru the eyes…

Maybe they are right.

Maybe when you look at me, You see me for who I am…

My flaws, my subtle and not-so-subtle imperfections…

My strengths as well as my insecurities, my awkwardness.

Perhaps you see it all, maybe you do see my soul.

But when I close my eyes, oh! when I close my eyes…

And I’m cut off from the consciousness of the world that my vision affords me,

Cut off from the warmth and assurance your beautiful soulful eyes provide me …

Left alone to my thoughts, doubts, and fears…

Unconscious of the world around me (even if for just a moment), and with no assurance from kind eyes.

It is then that I’m made to be me…

So I do hope,my love, that when I close my eyes…

You still see me .

xoxo,

Yarh
