I thought you knew Or maybe you do not Your quiet composure Penetrated my thoughts We had a moment And time slowed down A second of eye contact Has me turned around Your smile says it all And that glimmer in your eye Maybe you don’t know But if you asked I’d lie
When's the last time you looked at me? Like really looked at me. Nobody looks at each other anymore, we always look down at our phones instead of looking at the people we love and care about. Look at me. Why is that so hard? We don't have to say anything. We can speak and feel with our eyes. Look at me.
Inspired by Marina Abramovic' s ," The Artist Is Present".
A moment in time and space where two people are connected in a sacred way Honouring each other Listening to each other Feeling what the other person is feeling Eye contact A non-verbal permission that lets the other person know that they are welcomed into ones world
They have difficulty keeping eye contact Because she says it's like everything stops, Including time, And it was just so precious. As if they didn't know if they should smile Or say hi or give a nod signaling a hey, But she ends up panicking and runs away. As if she was Cinderella. When it was *almost midnight.
