Eyes tells a million words
Looking down your eyes past your heart to the very deep depths of your soul I can see every emotion you try to hide
As I gaze in your eyes I feel everything you feel and for that moment we are connected in a bond so tight that we think and breathe as one
Your eyes tell a story without your mouth even being open and telling me anything
I see the pain confusion and hurt in your eyes
Do I see this because your eyes are only a reflection of me and what I can’t see in my own life until I look thru the mirror of your eyes? And my heart can’t help but cry out for someone who knows and understands me
Just searching for love and some understandment would be just fine
Or is it that we have experienced so much of the same emotions that our eyes draw us close but our hearts draw us closer as we both look for something that’s missing in life
When you look in my eyes I stare back in your eyes pushing my pain away and putting on a big charade wandering if you can see the same thing I see
When you look in my eyes what do you see
Is it beauty, pain, confusion or is it all just one big illusion
Do you look in my eyes and see yourself or your pain does that same connection of love occur
The attraction like magnets a negative and a positive comes together regardless of the different forces
Does the eyes say words that the heart is to afraid to feel and the mouth resistant to say

Its true eyes can read a soul
But the question really is whose soul does the eyes really read
Do the eyes read the persons eyes their looking into or do the eyes read your eyes thru a reflection of the mirror in someone else eyes
We both stare at each other and we just wondering what the other is thinking not realizing we both feel the same
You always said eyes can let a person know the truth of what we hide
I thought I fell for you a little to early but love has no dates times you never when love will form
So when you looked in my eyes you smiled therefore I figured you probably seen the feelings I had for you and tried to push down
And then when you kissed me and seen the passion and the hope of us being together in my eyes you knew my love was sincere
Sadly the last time you l
Looked in your eyes I didn’t know that would be goodbye
