Your Eyes Speak

        
Your eyes speak volumes
but I hear nothing
non verbals roar with emotion
I hear nothing
I peer in and see fear and longing but hear nothing
those eyes , a place where warmth and lust use to reside
and where so much is always being said
I hear nothing
have I lost my ability to hear or translate
did I tune out or have I finally tuned in
where is the twinkle where is the passion
where is the longing I use to lay in
the love I dreamed about wrapping myself in
fantasized about dissolving into the fire in those eyes
your eyes speak volumes
but i hear nothing
non verbals roaring with emotion
I hear nothing
I peer in and see fear and longing
but hear nothing
those eyes
a place where warmth and lust use to reside
where so much is always being said
I hear nothing
 isolation my inability to hear fills me with fear
so I step away not wanting to look into those eyes
The place where warmth and lust use to reside
where clarity and love carried me closer to you
where peace and fulfillment ushered me into the place reserved only for lovers
with a voice that booms and inspires like children’s laughter
and a murmur that chills and sooths like a kiss to the forehead
all that sound is in those big browns
now as I look silence is all there is to be found
but I know your eyes speak volumes
