I am fighting with my eyes,
Whose power I despise.
Sometimes I cannot stop
Where my eyes decide to plop.

While I sit here trying,
My will to avoid you dying,
I think about your face
And my heart begins to race.

Against my better wishes
My nagging eyes are fishes,
And swim through the ruthless
to find you, hardly clueless.

I must force my eyes to look away, Eye contact means I must not stay.

The author's comments:
I wanted this piece to capture a moment in time, and more specifically, a certain moment that everyone has. I wrote about what feelings may be involved with having a moment of eye contact with someone.
