your eyes. 

I have been unreachable

* * *

Unravelling the hoods of your eyes

Those fragile, thin, vein sprinkled scrolls

delicately adorned with ancient scriptures

I have spent years in deciphering

Unravelling the hoods of your eyes

That appear to have been woven

By studious hands dwelling in mountainous habitats

Selfless hours of labour

Unravelling the hoods of your eyes

Those cold, sharp tools of deliverance

never failing to undo all that they gaze upon

I have denied their intentions

Of wanting to consume me

Yet whenever

you blink

I am eaten
