I remember staring into his bright blue eyes1

and he in turn staring into mine.2

I wanted to lower my gaze3

to look away,4

but I forced my-self to meet his gaze.5

I'm scared he'll find something out6

by looking into my eyes,7

but still I force my-self to meet his gaze.8

I look back up onto his eyes17

only to find, him staring back into mine.
