There & Back Again

You looked right down
into my very soul this evening.
Your eyes darted around the crowded
room, but they found mine,
locking onto me
like I was the only one there.
You crooned your sweet songs
into the microphone,
your eyes grazing over me.
I sang them right back
to you,
unable to do
anything but
smile like a damn fool.
In those moments
where our eyes met and couldn’t
move on,
I felt alive.
It was about time
I felt alive again.
