The poem(s) are below...


Help, they pulled me in, won’t let me go.
Shining like pearls, they reveal open gates.
These dreamy eyes, how do I love them so?
There’s no escape, no it must be fate.

I look into those eyes, I feel alive
I’m scared for I think I want to make ties
Fear not, for away I will not drive
If I look into those warm hazel eyes.

Months go by, and those eyes won’t gaze on me
But always in my dreams, two stars will shine
No you or I on one day soon, just we.
Until that day, I write these words of mine

So I’m sure that you’ll look up to the moon
For only then will you know; you’ll see me soon.
