So Shall I Abide, Willingly…



i constantly talk of eyes,
would you believe then,
if i told you that
i have never seen them for more than a beat of my heart,


why? the question will be,
why! my answer will be,
i know what they say,
i know how kind they are,
and i know why they turn away,
i don’t need to see them,
i don’t see them.


you have not chosen this, i know, that is not the strife,
it’s hard and harsh… from life,
but if there is more freedom those eyes get from my closed eyes,
so shall i abide, willingly.


i constantly talk of eyes,
would you believe then,
if i told you that
i have never seen them for more than a beat of my heart.
