When She Looks into my Eyes

September 6, 2020 - Heart matters, In Love, Reflections, Tenderness
When She Looks into my Eyes

When she looks into my eyes, they pause
Because they hear a call of their cloaked names
They hear the authority and command in the look
And they listen out to the silent words coming through
They stop roaming and stand in absorbed attention

She can read what they say in a chop-chop
They talk in gibberish and winding ambagious vocabulary
Their speech is impaired to other people
Yet she gets the clarity in the cloud of fluster
And they are in a safe space where they could say anything

When she talks to them, they nod in yielding consent
They dance like the young men on rhumba nights
They jive and twist from side to side
As they listen in, they look like they are betrothed
Like how the chicks give an audience to mother-hen

She holds them sentimentally like a faithful nanny
And rocks them in a quiet balm
She know how to hush them when they are just about to blurb
They are calmed to the tranquil of the still in the storm
Hers are nursing soft hands in the nest suspended on the acacia tree

I’ve tried using sunglasses and goggles
Just to deflect the song of the charming spell
But she seems to have recruited my ears also
When they see her in their cages, they wake up the others
So that everyone can hear with the exactness of the witty well-infomed waiter
