sometimes I wonder what you see
and I’d like to take a look at my own eyes
from the outside
please, can I borrow yours?

what would I find?
the smouldering green fire I pretend to see
when I look in the mirror?
dimly lit greyish nothingness?
a many colored sparkle?
or just a darkish wondering?

--- break ---

and what about yours?
I sometimes think I need a dictionary
to translate that
translucent look
that sometimes creeps into your eyes
when I gaze very intently into them.
I just seem to slip through
without even remotely reaching your soul

what is it you feel exactly?
does it make me disconnect?
