The Eyes... Have It!

Eyes closed
we kissed

against as the sunset

only once
during this eternity

I dared to
open my eyes
to see if you closed your eyes
when you kissed

to see the flying scarlet
of your hair unfurled
against the sunset

like a banner of love
bleeding into the sky.

Later you told me you too
had sought this answer

squinting at the impossible
question

& were pleased to see
my eyes shut tight too

& that my eyelashes
trembled

& seemed impossibly beautifully
long.

Ah, we must close our eyes to get pleasure from a fine wine, a chocolaty desert or.....a sweet...sweet kiss. Our eyelashes tremble when we get that indescribable hit! ! alana
