A Simple Gaze

gazing within her soul
made me want to hold her
to protect her from her fears
give her the assurance
of a better life to come

I needed to need her
to be needed by her
we were twin souls
that relished the pain
within bruised hearts

yearning for freedom
to be rescued
by each other

if only she would gaze
into my weary eyes
she would then see
her own reflection
that is me.......

"If I told you my reality, you'd
say I have a great imagination,
If I told you my imagination, you'd
say I've lost touch with reality"-Bob Shank, 2004

A Simple Gaze
I love when a guy can put in writing the feelings that are within him. You seem to be able to do this with all your writings.
You have a great gift, poetryman.
