Those eyes will haunt me forever.
Teasing, tormenting in their knowing stare,
Visiting me at my most vulnerable,
Turning, seeing, nothing there.
That secret smile, calls from her shroud,
Playfully twisting her lips
Not to smile, or break forth into laughter,
Not to pucker for a lasting kiss.
That face, so pure and smooth skinned,
No voice, there is no need for words,
Those eyes will haunt me forever,
As her screams were all I heard.
