but they burn through my own
and set my throat ablaze,
till I can't help this without delay.

One can start to notice the faces,
which Im sure you do.
They see you every day.
You see them.
But I see more than they do.
(Everyone has a story, you know).
They see clothes,
a face, eyes, hair,
they see you.
But a story is not inferences,
or something you can see.
[The things we see, hair, eyes, skin,
only make up 0.01 per cent of our DNA].
But something you must close your eyes to.
I've seen more than they have,
as Im sure they've seen more than I.
I've seen past masques,
and seen, in a different sense,
Because there is always more,
than a face. Than clothes.
(Some say our eyes are the windows to our souls).
Did you know that when you talk,
I close my eyes and listen,
with every fibre in me.
Sometimes words cease to be words,
yet become blurred sounds.
Even so, they keep their beauty.
And tell me things,
I would never had known
from a glance.
