Eyes

"Eyes" by Scot Buffington

I’d kiss you now to spite your eyes
transfixing mine within their keep
bewitching gazes mesmerize
in happiness to smile or weep.
Dare not I bow for lips to meet
still savoring your iris’ glow
as hungry for two pairs to greet
I cannot pass, lest forward go.
In seeing all you hide inside
beyond the pupil’s inky cave
moments when you dined on pride
instants sad for what you gave.
Deeper still, I find your heart
a firework, exploding grace
emits to me your gentle part
a light that beautifies your face.
Refractions, as we gift and take
redirect reflection’s stare
no love exchanged more than we make
between the souls and eyes we share.
Without a mortal touch we thrive
upon the depths, the deepest wells
sustain affection’s life alive
enchants us with our loving spells.
