He Is Poetry

A gaze into your eyes is like
Staring into a deep, inviting abyss
One that I love to get lost in
And one that I frequently do

Your eyes expose me
They undress my soul – it is laid bare
For everyone to see
But the only ones that do are
Just the two of us

Your penetrating stare burns
A hole through my sadness, my tears,
My worries and fears – until
They all disintegrate
And all disappear

Under the guise of your eyes,
My knees lose all power – but
My heart gains fortitude
It knows what cannot be put into words,

That you have taken hold of my soul
And that I have agreed to let you have it.
