You think my eyes are closed, but really, they are open wide.

You let down your guard and relax for the first time in a long time

you feel no enemy to fight at this moment.

You are beautiful.

I know you want to look tough always

but the peace that rests in the small grin on your lips

Frees you.

Cleanses you.

Peaceā€¦not something you are used to

yet something you should seek more of.

I know you think my eyes are closed, but I couldn't resist

The opportunity to see you as

I see you now.
