Break The Shell

When you will open up to me,

I promise, you will get to see

that my eyes will be filled with empathy.


I like to see the soft heart inside

protected by the tough shell outside,

if you will break your unnecessarily upheld pride.


I like it when you are present as a whole,

when I can seek into your soul.

I like that you are genuine and do not cajole.


I can listen to the innocence 

in your voice, without feeling exhausted.

It soothes me more than silence.
