Your Eyes


I wish I could see myself
through your eyes
I ponder the person
there I would see
would I see me
or would I see the lies
of the man
the world tells me I should be

A man
who has no feelings to share
that for another can't care
who wages not for loves sake
with a heart that cant ache

I wish you would look
and with new sight see
the hero for your love
that I want to be

A cavalier's intention
in armor of white
the lonely poetic soul
crying at night.

Open your eyes my love
and take a look
at what I could be
if a chance you took
