The Doors of Your Eyes

In the blink of an eye
Amusement to hostile
Not a flickering brow or lash
You lower your gaze
To suppress the blaze
That’s growing within

There’s no turning back
The damage is done
From here on forth, there’s peril
No warnings are sounded
Your apologies surrounded
My patience running thin

A shell of a being
Your insults mean nothing
They fall and collapse
Like heaps of burnt ash
No matter the pain
You aren’t getting in

I see as I feel
The layers I’ve peeled
To understand your view
Simple flaws I’ve dismissed
But there’s no escaping this
A sliver of light trickles through
