if only i could see what you see
if only i could hear what you hear
it would answer the questions inside of me
or it would unlock the door to my deepest fears
to see or hear things i never wanted to
but you are an enigma, a puzzle to my soul
if only i could see inside the real you
through the shell of your humanity: the rabbit hole
the oriface to your hell hidden deep inside
to find the answers that i seek
to bring forth in the darkness... a light
to open a dimension of the unseen
to fully understand your pain
to see the limits of your comprehension
than i can look differently upon your face
and finally bring forth compassion
