See you, see me

Seeing someone beyond what we see on the outside, that’s the task for every pair of eyes who seeks love. For beauty has its place, but the heart of a person, the beauty in their kindness… this above anything has an everlasting place that no one can topple down.

when your love reads me,
I hope I am a well worn
copy of a novel worth
Gatsby’ s hands
or even Holden
could behold;a heart
consumed by desire–
fire and ice
all of it nice,
but when it comes
to love, I want only
your eyes to read me
thoroughly and
beyond, cover to cover,
every last page
accounted for
