I couldn’t read the look behind your eyes, and that should have been my warning.
I can read everyone.
Just not you.
You seemed to say what you were thinking
But there was always a pause,
a hesitation before some words,
that seemed to hint at a tumultuous layer
Underneath the bravado
and the lukewarm compassion
and the innocent-boy charisma
was something more hard-edged,
unreachable to a mere mortal.
let’s not forget,
that we both play ball in the same court.
Because while you hide
the face of a snake
behind your mask,
I hide that of a lion.
And we all know who really rules the jungle.
Sometimes, ya just gotta let the emotions out.
