i never really liked
making eye contact.
i was never fond of having
my soul bore into by
twenty-something pairs of orbs
in the audience.
but it's a lot different
when it's only one person.
i was always shy.
you even told me i was
timid, that i appeared
too quiet, i should be
more social, you said.
your eyes are so breathtaking.
they're nothing special,
just normal hazel eyes,
they're just expressive.
your eyes have so much emotion,
potential brewing inside, tears
never seem to be released
because your eyes are always
glassy and gleeful, i'm glad
that you're happy.
i used to light up
every time i locked glances
with those eyes, my heart
would nearly skip a beat
in excitement, but now?
it's different.
now, every time i lock glances
with you, you look for all of
three seconds, then turn away
like i'm just that ugly,
do i look diseased to you?
am i that unimportant that you
feel like you have the
audacity to not even grant me
the common courtesy to smile
when i see you staring?
i know you are because when i
look back, you're still
standing, but you look
some other girl's way,
how dare you go after somebody
else when you know
how fragile i am.
when i see you, my heart speeds
up, i'm angry, upset and lonely
all at once when i see you,
i shouldn't want anything to do
with you, but i want closure.
i just want to mend it
before i fall off the edge,
your eyes meet mine.
my soul is aching.
my mind is raging.
and my sadness?
well, it's growing.
all thanks to you.
i could see any other part
of you and not feel any
sentiment, any romanticism,
any attachment i may grow.
it's only in your eyes.
they're the window to your
soul, i can see who you are,
not like those other girls
who only see a body, i see
a boy whose eyes i appreciate.
maybe you should look into mine
and try to reciprocate
the feeling. don't need to understand it.

I understand it nonetheless.

It's personal stuff.

And yet, it makes sense.
