Brown Eyes

His brown eyes
Just won’t leave me
That stare of his
Nothing short of dreamy
Another look
My thoughts run deeper
Unsure of what to do
My heart races back to you
Feeling compelled now
I can’t look away
In the depths of his eyes
I’ve completely run astray
I’m lost now
It can’t be denied
Ruined forever
From these feelings inside
Time stands still
As I watch him come near
My old thoughts and dreams
Replaced now with fear
I jolt for the door
Resisting the urge
I’ve got to escape
These feelings that surge
Running in haste
Leaving brown eyes a blur
I succeed for the moment
Not causing much stir
Anxiously hoping
All is not lost
From an enraptured moment
That will come with a cost
Finding myself in another room
He enters in quietly
And I’m filled with doom
He reaches out his hand
As a gesture of kindness
All I can think of is
Immoral, unrighteous
Not trying to seem
All but ungracious
I reach out my hand
And dream of embraces
His brilliant brown eyes
Reach down to my soul
Tempting me from realms
Completely foreign and unknown
Thank God for the truth
When I finally awaken
It’s all just a dream
My earth is not shaken

  4. Thank you and yes, you write beautifully! Better than most who are fluent! 🙂 I am not sure about publishing any of my work anytime soon. This is the first time I have really taken the time to write in many years. Oh to be a published writer! Now that would be a dream come true!

  5. Thank you!
    You are welcome!

    Yes, I understand.
    Oh, marriage and parenting; it’s the same for me.
    But it’s a nice dream. I wish it will come true, from the deepest part of my heart. You can be a self-publisher, too. Why not?! 😉

    Meanwhile, do you know this:
    http://www.copyrighted.com/
    I’m not sure about it, but I saw some great poets use it.

    Have a great weekend, ❤
