Caught In Folly (Lost In Her Eyes) - Poem by Leslie Alexis
I was like an astronaut gazing toward the earth.
I was in awe at the magnificence before me,
So I tried to walk in the direction of the sea,
(The beautiful green will give my life some mirth)
I was unsuccessful because I lacked gravity.
Just like Jupiter they were parted by a ring.
The beautiful land seemed one of infinite spring,
Where I am coming from winter reigned continually:
Fireflies don’t sparkle, nightingales never sing.
She called my name and I was lost in the universe’s eyes
That like a magician’s watch, had me hypnotized.
Coming closer, I thought kisses she would bring.
When she said, “Fool, leave me be! ”, I counted those words as lies.
