Those wide eager eyes,
Relentlessly peering into mine,
Tirelessly seeking for answers,
From the depths of my soul.
I look warily
Not giving away so easily
There’s uncertainty and reluctance
So to hide the brimming emotions
I blink and look away.
One thought on “Eyes of a Stranger”
Then look away.
And, I will look away, too.
We’ll sit back-to-back
Til our faces turn blue.
Too sad to hold the fence.
Too lonely to guard the tower.
We’ll lower those quick defenses
And share our hearts, hour after hour.
