Wander not thine eyes
When your eye turns to another,
Those years shared, ebbing,
And soon to be no more.
The memory flags up the time,
Whence eyes locked, unison for the first time…
My mind never possessed thoughts, times negative,
When togetherness would falter.
The beauty lies with the beholder,
All but for the briefest of moments.
Wishes dashed as in a maze,
No way out, my eyes without clout,
Loyalty cares not for the victim.
A glance towards another equates
As the dagger piercing ones heart.
Time calls an end to all that we embrace.
Life moves us rampantly toward our selected goals.
To kingdom come then I will be done
Without a care, life unfair.
Her stare never casting towards my soul.
