One eye cast its gaze

and caught you in its wake

loving you to the ends of the universe

you somehow found me

did it capture and melt you

swift and sure we were swept away

by fates mysterious depths

love grew vastly inside us


we were whole

curiosity held us

i can never hurt that which I love

id rather walk away than to bear its pain

one eye cast its gaze

and loved you forever


just because it can

lost without you

I close my eyes
