all in the eyes

it’s the way
you look at me
through me
as if I wasn’t there
or maybe it’s you
who isn’t there
but somewhere else
and I am just a
figment of my imagination
or maybe I am nothing
a disturbance in the air
a blip
noise rushing by
on its way to somewhere else
or perhaps
we’re in different universes
and the eyes are windows
but then
you don’t see me
and mayhap
I am not here at all
or you need glasses
special ones
with a tint
to make me visible
or it could be you
who is blind
who cannot see
what’s right
in front of your eyes
seeing is believing
they say
seeing is understanding
they say
seeing is knowing
so what are your eyes
telling you?
