I never knew a safe place until I looked into your eyes.
It’s why when you talk I look so intently in them. I’m not staring, I’m falling deep into the comfort of your amber eyes.
They shine like the fresh rays of sunlight on a brand new day. They pull me in like the gentleness of a fire, providing warmth and comfort.
There is a sparkle that makes me believe that magic is real and fairy tales are truths passed down through generations.
I may not be able to touch you, but I see you. Through your eyes I see the pain, the hurt, and the rejection. But I see the love, and kindness, and forgiveness that prevails.
I know no one else sees you the way that I do, and they never will. I see all of the emotions that you carry, but I also see the memories. And I see the dreams.
You look away and feel uneasy because it’s something I didn’t do often before. But I’ve had to learn to adapt and show up in new ways. I’ve always seen you. But now I am seeing you in a whole new way.
The more I see you, the more beautiful you are.
You have always made me feel safe when I look in your eyes. I am working on providing that same safety when you look into mine.
So for now, I will fall into those amber eyes and be gentle with the truths, pains and happiness that they carry.
