Poem -

Eyes wide shut

Eyes wide shut

With eyes closed…
I hear the silent moon weep
I hear the silent snow speak.

It is another way to see;
It is another way to be.

In the silence…your heart will fly
to spread its wings, in unknown sky.

With eyes wide shut…I feel so much
I feel the skin I, long to touch.

And, the kiss I plant upon your face
will be the sweetest kiss I’ve yet to taste.

No, it is not within my eyes that you hide
but, nestled between heartbeats deep inside.

Caron this is excellent, great rhyme and pace and SO much better than the abysmal film with the same title. Sorry Mr. Kubrick.
Great write,
Nigel
