The Eyes

The heated, illicit look
Of ectasy across your eyes.
Echoing throughout the heavens
On overindulgent eyes.
I never want to close my eyes..

Day into night she's with me
How sweet is her warm embrace.
Safe in the scent of her fragrance
So safe in her arms of grace.
I never want to close my eyes..

When my eyes close and I'm there with you,
Your softness touches me,
Kisses so tender I feel excited yet lost,
The sweet smells of your skin and hair, your voice in my ear.
I never want to open my eyes..

Mornings I find, her soft body next to mine
So warm.. so safe, but aware
I try to escape, she lures me back
Oh run though I try, she's there..there..there.
I never want to open my eyes..
