“I have written verses in your name in my head with the blood of my heart.
I have painted you in different hues and shapes in my mind’s eye with the shades from a dreamer’s irises.
I have sung forgotten ballads I have once forsaken for tunes raw, smooth, and sharp.
I have read and reread tales of magic in the night and see your name in the stars.
I have done all the things a fool on the brink of falling did but I have yet to pen your name in swirls of violet on paper for the world to see because you are secret I want to keep. I want to keep you unwritten on a parchment that I keep close to my heart.
I want to hide, not from you but with you from the eyes of the world. I want to be locked in a world within a world – a place only we know.”

“Do I need to say it out loud?” He smiled then. “You know I’m a big fan of your writings. I already told you that two to three years ago.” He playfully chucked me under my chin.
“I know.” I told him. “But I still like hearing you say it anyway.” That fleeting touch of his skin on my skin made me crave for more.
And then our eyes met. His eyes…. They are a true work of art. The windows to his soul in which I feel like I have so freely escaped from the world around me into another dimension. The depth in which his irises carried me was unexplainable.
In that moment I realized it was him that was the true work of art. I finally surrendered to the notion that I would spend the rest of my life trying to decipher the story that his piercing eyes told.
