See through

You don’t see her sad eyes

And broken smile

The cracks in her armor

And the scars in her soul

She smiles at you

As if she lights up from within

Her laugh like a balm

For the scars you like to pick

You don’t see the ghosts

She tries to hide

At the trail end of her words

And all the insults she let slide

 

All you see

Is what you want to see

Blind

To what you don’t want to feel

And all she sees

Is what she wants to see

Blind

To what she is not ready to feel
