Your Eyes

Straight out of high school, going into the U.S. Army active duty in November :)






There are radiant hazel ponds upon your face, drowning me in a whirlpool of exhilaration.
I cannot swim from the twin murky oceans glaring into my being, I'm numb with fascination.  

Your eyes have a luminosity that would eradicate any woman's soul.
Your creamy, cocoa orbs ignite my once cold heart, my chest now a fiery hole.

Earth reflected in your seas, choking me, overwhelming me.
Who can escape the waves of destruction in your dead staring?
