Blue eyes searching a room
Always trying to find a way out
Just in case.
Everyone is laughing and talking
But to blue eyes
They are all dangerous
This situation is dangerous
People may want her attention
Which some give away in spades
But she refuses.
Always so terribly afraid
He’ll change his mind
Then she will be left in this light
The only one of her kind.
Never reeling in a line she threw out
She graces floors with clean feet
So many reach out to touch her
But very few does she actually meet.
With the capacity for greatness
More love to give than she has ever received
He is the promise she has always hoped
If only he were believed.
Wounds all over her
Shaking, fearful, and mad
He seems to understand it all
Loves it all too, the good and the bad.
Sometimes while people are talking
She’ll get lost in a thought of him
Where moments get lost to life
She can always find them in a hymn.
Blue eyes scan a room
That he has brought her to
She seeks and exit
And there are plenty of them
But she doesn’t want to go anywhere
Not without him.
