Behold

Standard

Eyes see what they
Behold.

Eyes can excommunicate
Just as well as a formal act
Of exclusion.

Eyes can engulf and
Trust the love
It is showing

How can one control
The eye?

Shutting the lids.
Looking within.
And being
Quiet.

Simple answers,
Perhaps.

But sometimes
The act of engulfing
Can be so
Complete as to
Hurt

Impale a soul

One must be careful
With one’s eyes

Daggers thrown
Body’s impaled
Just upon this
One mortal glance

Please do not
Excommunicate me!

No, nor
Engulf me in a
Miasma of
What you see as Love.

Look careful.
Look real.
Look inside.
Look at me.
