compelled to stare at you
i've memorized every line on your face
wondering what makes you beautiful

perhaps i stare to make sure
i don't just look
through
you

perhaps i stare
to make sure you are real
that i see
you

i stare so that when i close my eyes
i'll find your image in my heart
i stare to not miss a waking moment

i stare to remember you
should i wake in the morning
and find you gone
forever

i stare in hope
of finding my soul
in your
empty
eyes
