Your eyes said it all



I hear the traffic in the street
Just here where first we did meet
I looked into your eyes
And you smiled at me
Buses spilled their cargo on the street
Crowded with the trample of many feet
And you smiled at me

We walked down to your office block
Deaf to traffic and the church’s clock
As you held my hand
I felt your warmth
But didn’t hear that city’s swarm
Or the ringing of the fire alarm
I felt your warmth

You pecked my cheek at the office door
I was sad that I would get no more
I touched your face
Your eyes said it all
I rushed back to my place of work
To bury myself in the office murk
Your eyes said it all

I tried to concentrate that day
To please the clients and earn my pay
But thought of you
And your alluring scent
Made me think of a future bright
To be with you both day and night 
And your alluring scent

  4. interesting how new love brings freshness to the sensoria. one remembers all the clinks and clanks, the tires rushing the horns blowing then that unabating wait for when next you can share with the one who revitalized these sounds

    gracias for sharing

  5. Oh yes, I think the eyes can express so much and make a person to look forward to more...and there is also something about a scent that can stay with a person all day as well!

  15. This reminded me so much of when I met my true love....and everything around us was non-existent except each other...those smiles, the eyes, the lingering scents....still there. Who wants to work when they are in love.
