The Gaze That Saved

Your smile captured my attention…
But not as much as your eyes.
The way you looked at me,
Like I was either made of glass that could break too easily
Or as if I was about to explode in flames…
It was the way your eyes looked at me,
Like you would use your tears to put out the flames,
Or dare to set yourself ablaze just to be closer to me…

    Yes, true. Some people give us hope just by looking at us in the “It's gonna be ok” way!

    Such haunting eyes…!!
    Eyes truly have a language of their own… Eyes are the features that catch my attention first..
