EYES

The thing about your eyes is that they cannot lie.

For what lies behind them is your soul.

So I stare into them as if peeping into a window,

To see you bare,

Vulnerable,

And unknowingly unashamed.

So much is held in your eyes;

Pain, pleasure, sorrow, joy

And loss.

By holding your gaze

I feel I hold all of the intricacies of who you are.

So I love your eyes because they show me how to better love you.
