Laughing Eyes

Have you ever had your lover in sight,
and just been perplexed by
your proximity
to a place you’ve been half a century?

Have you ever had your lover in sight,
and just been perplexed by,
the proximity
that you have achieved?
It’s bewildering

There was a time when I first met you,
your hair was always straight and long
I’d buy you flowers every other weekend,
to keep your smile a pleasing song.
Now I watch you in the mirror, as you craft your beauteous face
As we pass through lunar phases may we occupy the same space

May this be what love is for, always wanting more,
With that knife in your hand you’re still beautiful
I’d go anywhere and never find such laughing eyes

Your breathing and time, it’s all tied into mine
