Lost soul

(date unknown)

I stare into her eyes
Because I care look no where else
And still I drown
Like a drunken sailor
Staggering over
The shape of her lips
Or the part in her blouse
Her curves making me
Swell up like a sail,
Feeling myself driven
By a wind I cannot control,
While I sink deep into her eyes
Despite my best efforts
To stay afloat,
Hearing her song inside my head,
A poor man’s Odysseus
bound to the mast
to keep from straying,
and still I stray
a glance down, a wish for a kiss,
or touch of hand,
a lost soul in an endless sea
of my own desires
rising and falling to her tides
as I stare into her eyes,
knowing the whole time
I cannot help but drown
And breathe her
deep anyway
