Within Iris

How beauty sometimes seems so impeccable

With the watery spark of your lustrous eyes
Where nurtured meadows of harvest rise

I sink in tides, in your iris submerged
Waves, monsoons from within emerge

Enthralled I stand, my confusions declare
When only you stop and pause to stare

So sharp, I must say, a piercing of heart
Like flailing swords that with power impart

Within charm they grasp, they clutch, they seize
As they blink calmly and stealthily appease

How beauty sometimes seems so impeccable

Glimmering with your radiant eyes
I now have come to utterly despise

The times when you are asleep…
