The Fall

She trembled, wary of the fall
when he pinned her against the wall
while looking deep into her eyes

His voice was a beckoning call
easing, soothing the stormy squall
that was hidden behind her eyes

There was no reason for her to stall
so, she allowed herself to fall
finding love deep in his dark eyes

    1. One reason I don’t like eye contact much. I don’t want others to see what’s there. I looked into my own eyes once many, many years ago while high on LSD. I didn’t like what I saw then and I don’t want to subject that to anyone else.
