Tears escaped her eyes, unwavering from their trance,
a dance of beautiful love and pain,
the touch of his hands
on her face,
wiping the droplets
softly away.

        There is an intimacy created when we look into someone’s eyes. There is a reason why we say the eyes are windows to the soul.

      2. Yes, what’s sad is when people feel that intimacy and run far away from it.

        Yes, that is true! It’s because most people are afraid of how intimacy makes them feel. We live in a different world than the one I grew up in. Everything is hidden behind screens and no one wants to know what’s beyond another’s eyes.
