Open Eyes

“Your eyes, they tell me all your secrets.”

Your eyes, they tell me all your secrets. I see the happiness. Those rare moments when you’re unguarded, free. I see the hesitation. Your heart telling you to dive, but your mind cautioning you to wait. And I see the fear. That moment you realized it was too late. For better or worse, you’d fallen. But, darling, I don’t mind. Because I will protect your heart until my last breath.

  1. Beautiful as always. I loved this line: “That moment you realized it was too late. For better or worse, you’d fallen.” I’d never imagined that one could see love that way.

    The ending though! I feel that any relationship’s bound to consist of moments of broken hearts, accidental or no. It’s still a very nice feeling though. :’)
