I took one look into those eyes, fell

into an instant trance

They’re earthly feel and sacred glance

Probing with every blink to my aura

I dove into their embrace and bathed

in their fountains of rich tears and life

giving stories.

I took one look into those eyes and

found my reflection in its darkness , a

perfect mess so deep that my cracks

glowed kaleidoscopic images of my


As they aligned with the glow sticks

of the night sky, I found myself in

awe of their diamond-like reflection

So tainted yet alive with eternal flames.
