I cannot look you in the eye

I dare not hazard a glance.

I’m too afraid of what I might or might not see

And what they would mean to me

Too afraid that you’d see right through me

See something I didn’t know

And see it all at once

See something I didn’t want to know

Spot the gaps between my changing masks

If we ever had a safe ‘before’,

I wish we could go back

Tourists on some holiday

Boarding an anchored ship

That would never leave the harbour

What is the point of a fleeting feeling

That cannot build walls?

To one who has never sailed

Feeling isn’t everything

Seeing is still believing

How can one surrender

to end this bittersweet game

where nobody wins?
