Brown eyes, and a kiss

She has gorgeous brown eyes, warm and alluring. The first time you saw them, her eyes smiling at you, you knew you were gone. You knew you’d do anything for those eyes.

Her inviting brown eyes say everything, one look and you know she’s brilliant, you know she’s kind, you know you want her.

You do want her, you want to know her, to know what makes her happy, what makes her sad. You can talk with her for hours, and it feels like minutes, it’s as easy as breathing, just as natural. You know her so well, yet not enough, never enough. You want her eyes to always reflect happy, you want to protect them from sad. Her brown eyes make you want to hold her close, to touch her soft skin, to gently run the tips of your fingers down her cheek, around her lips.

Her eyes lead to her smile, lead to her to her lips, lead you to a kiss. Her kiss is beautiful oblivion, makes a whisper out of so much noise. Still, it’s her seductive brown eyes that make you want that kiss, a kiss more intoxicating than any liquor, any drug.

You wonder what your eyes tell her, if they say, “I love you,” when words aren’t there.

You do love her, and you’re afraid to say. You’re afraid, but you want her to know just the same.

    Please tell me that I do not have to write this in Italian…

    Your writing is beautiful. I’ve been trying to read an excruciatingly poorly written best-seller and I’m finally throwing in the towel. Just can’t force myself to read another paragraph of drivel. So your writing is a wonderful find.

    Thanks for posting, and please let your mom know that she has another fan.

    mike – ran into our story watching This American Life via netflix. You are an inspiration to us all. No excuses for not living life how you want to after watching. You got to live knowing you are having a positive impact on more people than you will ever know – when you are looking for a positive passing feeling thing of that.

    i will be following you from Orlando.
