Light in your eyes ~ A villanelle ~

There is a light, where there was none before

It can be seen in the sparkle of your eyes

That keeps me yearning for more


My heart has the need to explore

There has to be a reason why

There is a light, where there was none before

It is no secret, that it's you I adore

It is your gentle touch

That keeps me yearning for more

Fast asleep, sunlight hits the floor

You open up your beautiful eyes

There is a light, where there was none before


I kiss you gladly, you don't have to implore

It is the taste of your lips

That keeps me yearning for more


Your eyes glow like a beautiful sunrise

Like an artist's perfect rending

There is a light, where there was none before

That keeps me yearning for more
