Eyes Like Sleep

January 8, 2009

eyes like sleep
and crave it in the light,
counting the hours
in deliberation for the night,
when, pulling closed the shades
and locking up tight,
sliding and turning
they take flight,
through wild worlds
of alternate lives,
until morning comes
scalding and bright.

I Had A Feeling

her dress is as white as a winter skyline…
my hopes are as high as the top of the world,
her eyes are stealing my consciousness,
just like i had a feeling they would.

When our eyes meet its never your eyes i see,
rather its your heart that seemingly lies just beneath. 
No rippling pool, only depths,
the glassy surface, and secrets kept.
