EYES WIDE OPEN

It’s like nothing I’ve ever felt before, but I recognize it instantly.  It envelopes me.  A gaze that caresses my soul. Fingertips that graze my arm and light every dark corner inside.  There are never any words. Still, we always know. I fight it with everything I have, because I know it will be my downfall. But the more I pull away, the more it consumes me.  He holds my heart in one hand and reaches for me with the other.  I cling to him as I take my steps. Eyes wide open, but I can’t see a thing.
