Some would call it shallow…a freeverse rant/poem thingy…will you share your thoughts?

Some would call it shallow

I think it was
language leaking from her
hallow face hole
but I saw only
pink folds
the creases in her lips
rhythmic
hammering together
I would glance up at her eyes
and I knew perhaps
there was something behind the
pools of eager interest
in the flattery of my attention
but
I was not their then
like I am now
I was just a vessel for the pain
leaching from the hunger
of the youthful hopes
alive
in those spaces
that some call awkward
silence that is slipped
over and covering
the depths we are resigned to sink
in our pursuit
of what some would call

shallow
oops
he he
edits

there not their
and
the depths WHICH we are resigned to sink
