Depths

Depths

I don’t think people can see
The depths within you
The way I do

You keep your surface so still
Like a mirror
They see themselves, instead of
Looking through

I did
And I got blinded
By the sheer explosive force
Of your light
None of the surface dwellers know
What you keep, deep inside
But I, I want to live there
Sightless, in your radiance
That is why
you sear my skin

Close your eyes
Let me in
