Eyes

My eyes betray me. My hands have learned not to touch you. My face has learned not to show any reaction to your presence. My heart has learned not to flutter when you walk through the door. But my eyes… My traitorous eyes… They...

Never Enough

You think I don’t understand, But I do. You think I’m still in the dark, But I’ve already seen the light. I have seen myself through your eyes, And I know who you think I am. I am your safe place. I am your home away from home,...
