A tale of love, lies, jealousy and loss as seen through the eyes of a disillusioned lover.

Gaze: A Poem 1

Vast as oceans seemed the span

Of distance that between us ran;

Though mere inches did separate,

One look assures, a glance betrays.

 

No walls of concrete before us stood,

But barriers of gaze beneath the hood.

 

Perhaps no more than fancy this,

Potent as the serpent’s hiss;

Perhaps your eyes beneath the veil,

No hearts more than mine assail.

 

Yet your wandering gaze inspires,

Within me, the heat of unknown fires;

 

What venom thus, the mind infects,

What taint sullies heart’s innocence?

What power a flickering iris holds,

What mystic spells, what charms untold?

 

That which to build did years exhaust,

In a moment’s fluttering gaze was lost.
