Look me in the face and tell me what you see
When you hear my voice, see my actions and experience my words, what goes through your mind?
I can help you in so much but I can not answer that question. That, that is for you to find out.
But I'll try my best to show you all...all that I am and all that I can be
No, wait, I can't show you all if you're not there.
Are you there? Probably you are, I just can't tell.
That is not possible though, you know, I should be able to tell...
You know how it feels when you're in a four-walled box, a dark four-walled box. By dark, I mean no lights, completely no lights...Argh! Why am I telling you that? Don't you already know what dark is?
Probably not...dark is when everything goes black, pitch black
Now I'm going off track! ...am I? Really?
mmh dark, dark, nope I think I'm on the right track
Where was I? Oh yes, dark four-walled box. If you've been to one then you know what happens..
The look on your face tells me you don't...well, you'll blink a few times..don't ask me why, maybe because you feel like there's a veil shadowing your sight...probably.
Anyway, then you stretch your arms out trying to reach out to or for something.. who knows.
Then you get used to the dark...so used that you can walk with your hands at your sides, no need to reach out
So, I should be able to tell if you're there, you know. But if you are, are you in the box or watching from outside, like in a lab and I'm the lab rat.
I'll still show you, on one condition, please get in. Yes, I mean open the door and step into the dark...
I've seen you peeping because I saw some light, but you closed the door again. I'm sorry, no, I wasn't complaining...definitely not.
It's just the usual. Many do that all the time, I guess just like the darkness, I'm used to it. I still feel like I am complaining, am I? Please answer me...
Let me try reaching out maybe I can find you because when you peeped in, I got used to the light but then you closed the door and now...it's dark...again.
Ouch! What was that? Did you feel it? Of course not, you're still outside.
Let me tell you...
It was sharp, I think it pierced my skin, I can feel something warm running down.
Sorry, what did you ask? If it's painful...ha ha..never. Just like the darkness, I got used to it. It happens all the time when I see the light, then darkness again and I try reaching out for the light...
" What are you doing? " I heard you asking me that. Well, I'm retreating, why? Because now I am used to the dark and I've realised I'm reaching out for more darkness.
I know I said I'd show you all,
Well, actually I did, because that's all there is
But you did not answer...
Look me in the face and tell me what you see...
