Behind my eyes

A moment of truth

Of clarity, of warmth

Life goes on, and on, and on,

As much as I struggle, as much as I can give

You are the only constant, you never leave me

Behind my eyes, you are always

My love and my pain are eternal

For as long as there’s love and longing, for you dear,

There is pain, so much pain.

Pain for what we will never become

To hold you, smile and laugh with you

Never to feel hot breath upon my neck

To taste sweet lips, to dance with you

So much pain!

Yet, I soak this pain up

I welcome it, because you are always behind my eyes

You are forever in my heart

You are me

I am you

If pain keeps us as one

I invite more of it

You are always behind my eyes

That’s where you’ll always be

My dear.




      1. I did. You didn’t look close enough. Kindness, I said, and so much more.
        Encouragement. Support. A talk when needed. All of it, Paul. Because of what/who you are. A good man, a gentle soul and a great poet.
        Does that answer your question?
