there is no heaven

there is no heaven like your eyes…
to be caught in your immediate periphery,
I hope I’ve carried out a good and noble
deed consistently, repeatedly as I strive
to fit into your distinct vision
without preconceived ideas or notions…
I trust you won’t judge me
or count my flaws and have you thrust
them against me to alienate, isolate;
for I cannot have you see me in such a
way that distorts the truth of each
ray, each hue of this color that conceals
my flesh, my soul within; my spirit
shall no less cower before you whose
diverted eyes, thus, caste to hell the
unseen, unnoticed, unsightly… me
