I’m not as nosy as you think I am

I don’t look most people in the eye when I speak with them

not because I have something to hide

its because people should be allowed their secrets


Some people’s souls leap out at you

shouting and screaming

telling everything they try to silence

showing everything that is inside


sometimes things they have forgotten

sometimes things they do know are there


Some people

say exactly what is in their heart

when it is in their heart

normally what is on the inside

is reflected out


Those people I try to keep around me

Those people I like to see smile
