Her Eyes

There’s a power that only certain women have,

a force beyond words to describe

 

Where your breath is frozen, and your eyes are locked,

with every move freeing her guise

 

You surrender the only thing certain and sure,

your downfall worth all she unmasks

 

The future and past in a war they’ll both lose

—as you give what her eyes never ask
