Meet My Gaze
by FTS Miles
Meet my gaze, don't turn away.
Don't regret your ache, nor run from me.
You're beautiful in your tearglow calm
But no sorrow is worth its misery.
Without these walls a starbright river
Weaves a current for a silver sliver,
And the windsong has but joy to deliver.
I offer no pillar, I offer no end,
For all that comes from deep within.
I offer no reprieve, yet neither idle ear,
But I offer footfalls as companion.
So meet my gaze and an equal be,
For a waltz there is for you and me,
Beneath the magic of a starlight sea.
