Look Me in the Eye

Can you see me from there

The picture is hardly clear

Feels like a million miles

I am way over here


It’s possible to count freckles

Let me be your mirror

The thermal energy crackles

I could hardly stand nearer


I’m completely out of breath

You took every one from me

Reached down into my soul

Sipped me like a cup of tea


My reflection in your eyes

Close enough to read thoughts

The beat of the cardiac telegraph

My stomach ties itself in knots


The distance made no difference

Unanswered and unsaid

Two planets in remote orbit

Connected by a single thread


When I catch a glimpse of you

The world stops, completely immobile

For a second our wavelengths touch

We wear the same lingering smile
