Eyes Like Glass - Poem by Callie MaherPeddle

Closing my eyes, I dream of you
And my dreams begin anew
I know deep inside my dreams, I will never be lied to

Everyday so normal
Yet there seems to be a hint of the paranormal
That’s when I see you

You slowly walk to class
You’re eyes so blue and strong like glass
Everyone but me thinks you’re an ass

You’re not like the rest
Now don’t get me wrong, you’re not the best
But looking at you I feel like I’ve been blessed

But why can’t I see you’re face?
I need to find out for my dream is a race
Until you are erased

I ask you’re name
And I guess I am the only one to blame
For never catching you’re name
I feel more than shame

You move you’re lips
So slowly like if they where clips
Clips from a movie that never had a script

But I hear no sound
And you’re frozen on the spot like you’re bound

Slowly the tape recorder rewinds
And all my memories are left behind blinds

All I see is a glimpse of blond hair
This just doesn’t seem fair

Are you real or not?
Am I the one who forgot?

Who are you?
I asked anew
But every time I reach you’re name
I guess I’m the only one to blame
For I feel shame
For waking up before hearing you’re name

Eyes like glass
A smile that dies
Hair so pale
So long so frail
Face I can’t see
A name I can’t hear.
