Eyes That Tell

She had those natural eyes of blooming tiger lillies and monarch butterflies

What beauty lies in secrets untold where darkness moves and passions unfold

Never had she thought they could be lovers

Never had she thought they would run to each other

She fathomed they would kiss and run in the moonlight

Or sit on wet grass and theorize in the twilight

They could hold

Hands

One trying to understand

The other trying to pray against the cold

Both pretending it hadn’t happened so fast

Both trying to make it last

Both dreaming of a love swell

And eyes never afraid to tell
