As your eyes go
& your skin turns
away from me

I feel the energy transfer
In heat waves
& headaches;

I look at you
and I’m sorry
for the way that I am.

For you
are all
that I’ve lost;

Theres a calm
that comes
when I’m not.

Eyes downcast
only wanting
to be pulled in close.
you do.

You are all that I’m not;

You hold my face
in your hands
and make me small

When our eyes meet
we go away.

for a moment,
the world quiets.

You are all that I need;

Listening now
all I hear
are slow waves

& suddenly
I'm lost
in turquoise.

I want to take you there.
