Bullet Proof

bulletproofThe glass sees both ways
An invitation to stare
But never sight unseen
Hatred thick like smoke
Solidifying the bond
This overwhelming need
To be better than
Instead of inferior
Though I know better
The judgement scales
Finding me light as air
I know she sees through me
Past glass and skin
Through bone and soul
Into those deepest parts
And I only see her smile
So smugly satisfied
But I know there’s more
A time when she cries
Familiar tears of pearls
Behind her solid walls
That strong edifice
Threatening to engulf me
To drown me at the gates
Waiting for her
To let down her guard
Even though I’m not worth it
But isn’t that love
Forgiveness over time
Even when we don’t deserve
To stand here
Staring through the glass.
