As the days past,  
winter comes near
to where I am and live. 

In the winter, I feel transparent;

like you can see my emotions 

under my skin.

I feel that you can see through me,

that you can see my shivering bones

and my soul,

despite that I try to hide myself

by wearing a hat,

 

and in doing so,

trying to close

the curtains of my eyes

to my soul;

but you still see right through me,

like everything who I am 

is clear to almost everyone.

 

Do you see

right through me,

when the season of transparency 

is here?

Because I feel,

that is when my soul is seen,

better and vulnerable.

That's very true. :) I remember a quote froma famous writer, that I love and want to share with you. "To truly love at all, is to be vulnerable." ~C.S. Lewis :) So very true. I agree with you. :) Thank you so much, Caramel. :)

I like how you related transparency to Winter. To me I thought of love. Love makes a person vulnerable. Love is pure. and for me there always seems to be this "season" where everyone around me is in love. 5/5 Beautiful -Caramel Kisses
