soft

i have soft eyes
ready to bleed
at the first sign of cruelty
or unjust treatment
i hide them behind my shades

"Behind my sunglasses I can be myself."
Sensitivity is all too often interpreted as weakness, but I think it is a strength.

The shades cause you to look cool, aloof, a little intimidating. Soft and vulnerable is not what comes to mind. Which is the point, right?

Good poem.

What a marvelous revelation! I have always seen you with shades in your pictures.
