A Memory

marcia

I remember getting lost in those eyes

Smooth dark water inviting me in

To hold me captivated in hypnotic depths

Flustered, voiceless, not knowing how to begin

 

More than just a window on the soul

But an embrace of the senses, tactile in effect

A gentle caress to the ego

Almost imperceptible, like a whisper of breath on your neck

 

A glance, the spark

Re-ignites a fire that once burned deep inside

Just enough to let me stand a little taller

As heavy years are brushed readily aside

 

A swirling vortex

Where reflections glint and glimmer

And the strongest resolve

Dissolves like shadows with a shimmer

 

A tonic for the spirit

Which is lifted to new highs

Knowing nothing now can save me

As I’ll always get lost in those eyes
