EYES DON'T LIE...
I've always believed eyes tell a story.
From the moment I met you you've
worn shades to protect the pages in
your book. Day one I've asked you to
remove them. U told me you didn't
want me to look in your eyes
because they tell how you're
feeling..and you weren't ready for
that..but that I could trust you were
looking into my mine.. Which was
the very reason I wanted to see
yours... Still trying to figure out the
guy behind the shades...
Something about your eyes are
alluring to me. The color and the
shape..i love the way you
blink..When I look into them, they're
pleading for something. I haven't
figured out what that something is
When you look at me, your eyes
pierce right through me! Its like
looking into my soul.
Some days I avoid eye contact
because I don't wanna fall for you. I
tell myself I don't wanna be lured
I don't want my heart abducted by
your mesmerizing eyes..it could be a
trap..just a game that you
play..either way I'll stay, I'm
fascinated to play...
You have a story to share..you've
overcome too much not to tell. Your
book is full of pages with several
I'm ready to blow the dust off, crack
it open, and read from beginning to
end...I know it has some horror,
violence, suspense, comedy, drama
and romance wrapped up all under
I'm sure it'll be a bestseller with an
happy ending that will change if only
one person's way of life...maybe
even the world's.
Let me open it up, and flip through...
