, , ,

You kissed me with your eyes,
Their chestnut glow held me close–
Promised to never let me go.
It was I who walked away.
I let our memories dissolve–
The petals of every rose lay
Scattered across the floor.
But your eyes never left me.
They followed me, sometimes
Guiding me from a distance,
Until the day my eyes turned
Back to yours.
