You can take only what I give
“Your eyes pierce me as you look from a far.
I stop with fear.
Your gaze has me still as you talk with your eyes
I stand with fear.
Your rays of heat that penetrate from your eyes, burn mine.
I shiver with fear.
You blink as you step closer, yet your eyes don’t move.
I sigh as I remember how tired of fearing I am.
You can take only what I give.
I give you no more. ”
