Behind the Curtains

No one looks behind my eyes,
The windows of the soul.
But I learned so very long ago,
To keep the curtains closed.
What would they see if dared to look?
Some form of empty shell,
A cold and frightened, trembling thing,
Hidden beneath layers of velvet.
I wander to the windows,

[Hata Bildir]
