Just Like Mine

Chapter 2|Tigers

Just Like Mine
What is it you want?
The meaning behind your eyes,
teasing me with the knowledge that there is something you want to do.

I look into your windows
past the hazel curtains
into the dark abyss of your pupil.
There’s something there.
Inquisitive, fearful, and eager.
They mirror my own eyes.

What is it you want?
The meaning hiding in your lips,
teasing me with the knowledge that there is something you want to say.

I look at your door
no knob to turn
nothing to make it say
what you really want to tell me.
Rigid, Shut, and teasing.
Your lips are just like mine.
