Drowning in Your Eyes

You drag me into the inky darkness
of your eyes that seem to reflect
the infinite dance of the stars
that coalesce into fragments
of your broken soul.
I’m drowning in the beauty of your sadness
that echoes deep inside
resounding loud and clear
the same sorrow that reside
in the very depths of me.
I’m falling into the deep pools of your eyes
their gaze holding me fast
restraining me as I tried to free myself
from the trap laid out before me.
I’m lost as your eyes penetrate
the secrets I keep within me.
How easy it is for you to unravel me
my thoughts, my words you took
without having to say anything.
I am drowning, drowning in your eyes
and there’s no one to save me
except you.

There is magic in the words your lips do utter
into the night where our shadows reside,
with the flames from the candles our only lights
reflected back within the deep pools of our eyes.
Your whispered words that get carried by the wind
trail goosebumps on flesh as your breath descends,
a spell to remove the chains that bind the fire
setting it free to course through cold skin that waits
for your touch to ignite the desire within
letting it loose and unbound on waiting silken sheets.
