Yes, I'm referring to you
When you speak to me I look intently into your eyes.
Sometimes, I think I make you uncomfortable,
as if my gaze burns your flesh and penetrates your soul
while awakening your emotions.
I give my undivided attention because I'm genuinely interested in what you have to say.
I make you feel like the most important person in the room.
I keep my gaze on you and I don't let distractions tune you out.
I respect your deepest thoughts and your darkest secrets.
I see you for you.
I see how much you have to offer the world and it makes me so proud.
It pisses me off when you dismiss me as if you are blind and can't see me.
I am more than just the words I write.
Open your eyes and see the sadness that lingers deep inside of me.
It is you that my soul grieves.
Why are you so afraid to look at me?
When I get frustrated
I don't see so clearly.
When I dream,
I wear rose colored glasses.
I am ready to see the truth however disappointing it may be.
As of right now,
It couldn't get any more disappointing than it already is.
You are the only one who can remove my blinders and make me see.
