I catch her eyes by accident–

The puddle’s not too deep.

But then my foot sinks down and down–

I never thought to leap.

Descending blue, the rainy sky

Surrounds my foggy head.

The sharp mud cold invigorates

A nerve I’d thought was dead.

My tingling toes and numbing skin–

Her gaze holds no reprieve–

It hurts, embraced by icy cold–

But it’d hurt more to leave.

I really enjoyed your poem. The rhyme was really nicely done and it just made the poem flow really smoothly. I really liked the idea of kind of falling into a gaze, you showed it really cleverly. Great poem.
