Afraid that if we made eye contact in any way, I’d go back.
But I stared this time.
No longer hypnotized.
Nor did I shrink back
From the invitation to surmise
what was hidden in your eyes.
Cause now I know;
Pomp, circumstance, insecurity, ice and lies.
And yet I still didn’t want to be caught staring..again.
I’m so much stronger now.
As you very well should be.
Considering its natural progression for even the most well mannered, finely groomed, articulate, and convincing leech.
Now this time you avert your eyes
And tell them to never speak of me.
