Into The Void - Poem by Alison Mary Dunn

I’ve seen the void inside your eyes
That curious stare that took me in
The black abyss swallowed me whole
From when you laid your eyes upon me
I have no wish to stay away
Indeed have longed to see those eyes
To re-engage with them again
And see them open wide and thinking

You too like me can see beyond
Alert and noting all the senses
Shifting high above these planes
Far from the obvious in life
That’s why I crave to meet you here
So I can see into your eyes
Wherein I’ll find my inner peace
As I look deep into the void
