Attraction


Oh let me look and drown in your dark eyes,
That black and knowing smile a sharpened knife,
Detached but drawn to everything that dies.

So hard to sail our ship through frozen cries,
And many storms have drained our love and life,
Oh let me look and drown in your dark eyes.

So dead and cold your disregard for lies,
Not born to be a mother or a wife,
Detached but drawn to everything that dies.

You know the path toward your sweet demise,
Existence separate from filth and strife,
Oh let me look and drown in your dark eyes.

Attract me through the terror of surprise,
Unsure if knowing you I can survive,
Detached but drawn to everything that dies.

Can't let you go against all good advice,
I need a home, a place where fear will thrive,
Oh let me look and drown in your dark eyes,
Detached but drawn to everything that dies.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, --
The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
