Eyes

I used to think

That words were

Magic

And sometimes

I still do


But I’ve learned 

They are often

Lies

And easy to

Askew


I used to long

To hear your

Words

Whispered to me

Late at night


There are times

When I still

Do

But the timing

Is never quite right


Still, you’ve taught me

Words aren’t

Everything

My own I must

Learn to subdue


I’ve never felt

So content with

Silence

Turns out your eyes

Are magic, too
