your eyes

your eyes incite me
igniting my will to
most hopeful wonder
quite deftly redefining
this cumbersome life
torn bitterly asunder
this harshest soul that
blunders through time
like a beggar most blind
lost and uncertain
yet arrogant to a fault
’til somehow you—
just, my darling, you—
brought me together
uniting my then and now
tying my clumsy words
to a meaningful grace
lifting my ashen face
to welcome the moon
raising my heavy limbs
to embrace the stars
inspiring my sullen flesh
to dance ’til the dawn
your eyes thus guide me
your eyes invite me
to be, to truly be
