When I look into your eyes

When I look into your eyes, I am nothing but surprised.
I know about your past and how it didn’t last,
How you got hurt, burnt, Abused and used,
and i bet your confused.

You deserve better, if not always and forever.
You said you didn’t care, But you couldn’t bare,
Isn’t it such a scare.

Let me into your life and Ill show you that I care.
Like an endless dream Ill always be there.
I know your busy but please make time.
Working so much should be a crime.

poet’s corner: I hid my love by John Clare (english poet 1793-1864)

I hid my love when young till I

Couldn’t bear the buzzing of a fly;

I hid my love to my despite

Till I could not bear to look at light;

I dare not gaze upon her face

But left her memory in each place;

Where’er I saw a wild flower lie

I kissed and bade my love goodbye.

Love for a Hand

Two hands lie still, the hairy and the white,
And soon down ladders of reflected light
The sleepers climb in silence. Gradually
They separate on paths of long ago,
Each winding on his arm the unpleasant clew
That leads, live as a nerve, to memory.

But often when too steep her dream descends,
Perhaps to the grotto where her father bends
To pick her up, the husband wakes as though
He had forgotten something in the house.
Motionless he eyes the room that glows
With the little animals of light that prowl
