her eyes


her eyes
sensual and mysterious
so alive with fire and passion
grab me from across the crowded bar
and capture me with a fleeting look
i am taken prisoner 
by those eyes
i stumble forward in a hypnotic trance
when i reach the eyes
i smile and start to talk
but they turn to ice
the eyes dismiss me with contempt
and turn away
only to latch on 
to another
fool
