Bare Eyes


I can't
I'm not sure if I can
I don't know how to be with this

How do you do that?
How do your eyes just gaze in my precise direction
Fixate themselves onto the doors of my core
And penetrate me?

Just how
Do your eyes pierce through all the noise
Directly into my soul
And it stands there bare
Naked
Raw
Before you?

Verbal-silently
Expression-fully
They say exactly what they want to say
They read exactly what they are there to read
I understand nothing
And I understand everything
They wash over my soul
And leave

And I stand here
Shaken
Mesmerized
Perplexed
Unable to comprehend
That surreal embrace
Fainting
Fainting
Into a pool of enchanted awe
