Desire crawled up your face and lit your eyes,
and I began to lose you then.
I'd seen the light of wonder burning there.
Fireflies of laughing glee,
delightedly between us,
jumping in reflected flames.
And then I loved you,
we shared silent mysteries:
A private joke against the world.
For when we're strong together,
all our memories dance brightly in the fire in your eyes.
We tasted our day's triumph,
We seized at liberty,
tore the disguise;
the wine we shared -- hypocrisy's defeat.
But now your eyes,
sear me through:
Reflected there, burns all I was to you.
