Introduction:


“I believe

in love at first sight
but I will always believe 
that the people
we love
we have loved before.
Many, many, many times before
and when we stumble
through grace and circumstance 
and that brilliant illusion of choice
to finally meet them again, 
we feel it faster
each time through.
The one glance 
that set life alight
is two sets of two eyes
staring through the layers
of lifetimes and stolen glances
and first kisses and hands held;
the brace against the weight 
and unrelenting tide
of waiting.
I believe
in love at first sight
but am not burdened with the misconception
that it's a first sight
at all.” 
― Tyler Knott Gregson



Eyes
My body is pressed against the wall,
Grabbing a corner to steady a potential fall,
Breathless, I catch your stare on me,
And smell the ooze from your masculinity.

Immediately, I don’t know what to do,
Squirm about as a woman who’s lost her cool.
Like the thief caught stealing someone else’s shoes,
Or an owl shrieking to an intrusion; explicit whooos!

Nothing’s spoken in air heavy yet calm,
And my heart races in spiked emotional alarm.
I turn to receive the rest of the room,
And then back where your eyes continue to loom.

You’re a formidable man, this I can see,
Rugged, individualistic from a world that’s “Duty Free”!
You take what’s desired and within reach,
Which scares the crap out me, yet my interest peeks.

In confidence, you step to me in a firm advance,
As a breath escapes and my mind goes blank.
Slowly sipping on that glass of white wine,
I look up to accept your eyes diving into mine...

To accompany this poem I am selecting Willie Nelson's "A Womans' Love".

"A Woman's Love"

A woman's love goes deeper than a man's
Into a place only she understands
It's a healing touch, it's a blade of a knife
But it's a woman's love, a woman's love that gives you life

A woman's love is stronger than a man's
But it can hold your heart in the palm of its hands
It'll keep the faith through the long dark night
It takes a woman's love, a woman's love to see the light

It'll make you fly or sink you like a stone
It'll leave you high or leave you all alone
If you believe her word no matter what you've heard
Anybody say about it, there's no life for you without it now

It'll make you fly or sink you like a stone
But it'll leave you high or leave you all alone
If you believe her word no matter what you've heard
Anybody say about it, there's no life for you without it now

If a woman's love ever finds your soul
It'll break your will and take control
Cause the very thing that your heart cries for
Is a woman's love, this woman's love and nothing more
It's a woman love you're living for
