Day 7 – Those Eyes

eyes.gif
I was standing on that pavement…
When you walked by, I was left stunned and in amazement…
So much so, that at the time I didn’t realize it…
But I was struggling to breathe…
I always wondered how you did it…
When so many others have begged me to share it…
Yet without even wanting it…
You took away my heart from me…

For a time we were, caught in this feeling, and I tasted your love, and I gave you my love…
But that moment was always destined to be fleeting, because no matter what, I wasn’t enough…

Don’t give me those eyes, Darling, because you know I can’t say no to you…
But between each other, I won’t mean to you what I never thought I wanted to…
In another life, Darling, I’d do anything to be with you…
And hopefully in that world, you’d love me the same way too…
So don’t give me those eyes…

The last time that I saw you…
You looked at me, & held my hands as you asked me to…
Help you find someone that was lost to you…
And it killed me in the most tragic of ways…
Because I know that while I matter to you…
I would never matter as others do…
So I took your hand and guided you to…
The one you lost that day…

But that night there were several little moments, when you looked at me, I questioned what I saw…
Those times you would pull yourself closer to me, but I had to walk away, because I wasn’t strong enough…

Please don’t give me those eyes, Darling, because you know I can’t say no to you…
We can’t have each other, no matter how much I want us to…
I wish I wasn’t right, Darling, knowing I’m not the one you think of when your nights get cold & blue…
I wish I was the one you saw all the time, not only in these moments which are so few…
So don’t give me those eyes…

So now, at this bar we’re sitting…
These drinks keep on refilling…
I don’t know why we keep on drinking…
Because it will take just one more glass for us to fall back in love…
You’ll tilt your head and look at me…
And I know, I won’t have the will to say…
No, and simply walk away…
Because this is the only thing I want…..

But when we’re caught in this feeling, and I taste your love, time freezes and this moments stops…
And from that moment till the morning, then I will take it all, because I will never get enough…

So, don’t give me those eyes, Darling, because you know I can’t say no to you…
So this glass will be the last, because this is something that I cannot do…
In another life, Darling, we’d drink from the dusk until the skies are once again blue…
And we’d have each other simply because we both wanted to…
But this is not that time…
So don’t give me those eyes….
