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.
