His eyes penetrate my walls
My lies, woven skilfully to dissuade intruders
His eyes invade my space
Plundering my fortress
Piercing my soul
They won’t stop.
His eyes are hungry
Their voracious appetite only quelled by my secrets
Devouring my pain shamelessly until nothing is left
My garment of loneliness has been torn to shreds
I am terrified, vulnerable, naked.
Yet, he remains.
Undaunted by the chaos
Prepared for the challenge
His eyes have seen the truth
And they are still hungry, still sincere, still in love.
