The Way You Look at Me

It is the way you look at me;

your eyes gather me in, cerulean, intense.

your soul is in them, mine to take.

 

You give yourself to me, whole, complete,

holding nothing back.

Your heart is mine to break.

 

The hidden part of you;

the part that no one else can see -

that I can shatter with one act,

one look, one word,

is safe.

 

I will be your shield.

I will protect your fragile heart.
