They beckoned me from across the room.
Their crystal blue clarity
Seemed to frown,
Seemed to call for help,
The radiance burnt out
From the loss of his innocence.
Had seen things,
Unwillingly burned into his mind.
Through just one glance,
I seemed to know this boy’s pain;
His longing for escape.
Those eyes held a window
Into his barren, ransacked soul
Pleading for love;
Pleading for someone
who would understand.
Little did I know,
I was that someone.
The girl who would lend him a hand
And lift him off the ground,
The girl who would provide the escape
He so wished for,
The girl who would fuel the radiance
back into his eyes,
The girl who would mend the broken window
That transparently revealed his soul.
I was the girl
Who would show him love.
