Treasure Island

Dark Angel

(19th Sept 1983 / Nairobi Kenya)

The Mystery Eyes


The crowd parted magically
and the whole noisy world seemed
to disappear in a whiff
And there he stood, proud and captivating with
Eyes so bright and magnetic.


I looked, not one but many
Surreptitiously I cast searching and assesing glances
to confirm i was seeing right
Still there he was, magnificient in appearance with
Eyes so bright and magnetic


I willed to tear my eyes away from his
once his gaze caught and held mine
to a silent allure
Deeper into me he seemed to stare with
Eyes so bright and magnetic


His lips parted in a captivating engaging smile
the way the sun strains against the clouds
to throw it's warm rays
I felt as if he was beckoning me with
Eyes so bright and magnetic


I looked down in serious indecision
debating whether to walk to him
to know more about him
I looked - nothing, now all I have is a memory of
Eyes so bright and magnetic

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
