The way you look at me has changed 

The way you look at me has changed

***

There was once love

There was once excitement

for the potential future was full of enlightenment

***

But now they scream all that you have refrained

Full of rage and distain

They complain about the pain

Ashamed and estranged

You quickly look away

***

You can’t hold my gaze

and wipe the single that escaped while the others remain enchained

But in that single second the energy was exchanged

the information was relayed

as the disappointment jumped out and exclaimed

***

I look away

understanding what you say

but still hurt all the same

***

Maybe one day

Maybe one day that will change

And we can hold each others gaze without the shame that each glance frames.
