The Layers

Underneath the layers
Of your heart
Are words unspoken
I see then in your eyes
I hear them in your voice
I feel them in your touch
The burning coals
Those ones in your heart
Those ones you suppress
Those ones that restricts you
Standing between you and I


Underneath these layers
Of your soul
Are people who have caused
You harm to the extent
You lost your self worth
I see it everyday
You think they are hidden
But trust me
I see deep
Into the hidden layers
Of your heart.
