Eyes

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.

Those eyes

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.
