In Your Eyes

In your eyes

I am taken in

and gently held

 

In your eyes 

unspoken wishes

wait to unfold

 

In your eyes

an invitation

to alchemy and chaos

 

In your eyes

I am peeled apart

layer by layer

 

In your eyes

there is a fire

I sizzle and crack

 

In your eyes

all my vulnerabilities

naked before you

 

In your eyes

I am at the edge

of a precipice

ready to take flight

equally feeling

the terror and thrill

of what may come

 

In your eyes

infinite possibilities

one perfect moment.
