Can't you see?

They couldn't see life through her eyes,

and though he tried, 

neither could he.

it was soon after her first taste of brokenness 

the sting of loneliness and desolation clung to her 

Like melting nylon in an inferno and though 

eventualy the fabric shed

the feeling was left burned in the memory of her skin

even deeper, had plastered itself to her soul.

he did not have the eyes to see her truth 

only what he proclaimed as his own version of her honesty

she could not live though his eyes 

the glare seered her being.

she did not have the stomach for lies

as innocent and delicately kindly as they were,

she closed her eyes,

preferring very much to be blind.
