Caught, snared, captured
Hopeless or hopeful?
Her eyes found me
Sought me, kept me
Held me in their gaze
All things swayed out of focus
Shifted, just left of center
Left us in the middle
Alone, together, alone.
Penetrating, seeking, searching
Her eyes bore into me
Rousing secrets I’d buried
Stories I’d forgotten, searching
Holding, prodding, held.
Was she in my world, or was I in hers?
Her eyes, those eyes, portals
I was most certainly in hers.
Someone spoke,
Portal to her world closed
All things shifted, swayed
Placed me back into my world
Alone, ever, alone.
