A collaboration over too much coffee.
coffee and pen

please blink.
you look too directly
into my head.
there are thoughts there,
that must remain thoughts,
they cannot become words
between us.

please blink.
you look too directly
at my heart.
it changes the familiar tattoo
and i stumble, dancing.
across the room you smile
those eyes fixed
in their intent.

please blink.
you look too directly
at me.
it sears my skin
dry, traps the words
inside my throat
i stand inarticulate
to your silent suggestion
across the room
you raise a silent toast
and smile
you know how i feel.

please blink.
you look too directly
at me.

i see your consciousness in my eyes..
i would stumble if looked away for a moment..
i have with me the cabbaged seconds that i respire..
look into my eyes and you would know why i don't blink..

can't believe you wont look away for the jiffy..
i tame an ocean..can't get drippy
got to gauge you..can't afford parallax..
can't blink..i can't relax..

Blink not anymore,
Your insight is what i need...
To turn my soul inside out.

Nice poem!
