i want you to have soft eyes
with an unconscious smile creasing them,

i want you to have meaningful thoughts
reflected in them.

most of all, i want you to impersonate the way
i look at you. with care and you know.

you know.

but you,
your eyes are cold and cynical,
with thoughts often hidden by incessant blinks,
or flighty glances,
preoccupied by everything else
but me.

(where i whine about non-mutual love lol)
