he says "i can see the love in your eyes,"

eyes

he says "i can see

the love in your eyes,"

but can't imagine the depth

of the forest behind their green.

empathy flits behind trees and

fairies ring invisible bells in the dense fog,

trying to lure my love out

underneath the pleiades.

clear skies are irony and

green eyes are forestry

with swampy tendrils

like serpents that can't be trusted

wrapping around your pinky finger

where a promise of lust is.

but brown eyes breed bliss.

familiar like melted chocolate ice cream

dripping onto my tongue,

with those popsicle sticks that

give me my best jokes.

the ones that show the laugh lines

that crinkle his paper flesh

like gift wrap on christmas.

his smile is my favorite present.
