Behind These Eyes

Hollowed out
A pawn in love’s cruel game
Set out before the hounds
Of the truth that lies
In the shadows of you

Behind these eyes
Can you see
The heat of my flame
Feel the ice of desire

Across the vast space
I reach out to you
Though your sight
I have never seen

Your eyes I feel
Seeking out my depths
Becoming lost in all I am
The things I am yet to be

Find me, my love
Frozen over by guilt
Horrors of shame
A lifetime apart
Longing for the embrace
Of the one that sees
Behind these eyes
