Past These Eyes

Written June 19, 2005

Please allow me to apologize
For not letting you see past these eyes
I’m sorry that I cannot let you
But it’s the best thing for me to do
I have constructed this barrier
To shield myself from the scarier
Things I don’t ever want to know,
To hide things that I don’t want to show…
But you shouldn’t worry about me
Because I hope that you’re able to see
That this is how I live ev’ry day
And I’m making it out okay
