Eyes of Smoke and Flame

She has a look

In her eyes of

Smoke and flame

That pins you

To the spot

 

Examines

And categorizes you

Ally

Threat

Equal

Or beneath her notice

 

Penetrates

Your very core

Sees all your secrets

The ones deep down

You keep from yourself

 

She is a steel trap

Never forgetting

The truth that she finds

In your ransacked

Mind

 

Her assessment

Burning into you

Making you squirm

Longing for sunglasses

A tinfoil helmet

 

She has a look

That has seen

Nightmares

You can only

Imagine

 

She has a look

That makes you

Want to run away

From her knowing gaze

And from

Yourself

    1. I love the description “raw and smoldering.” I stumbled on some writing prompts this morning while doing research for a completely different project that just unleashed some fierceness this morning that I didn’t know was lurking below the surface. I went with it. But thank you for checking in.
