It's All In The Eyes

The eyes always my first point of contact
Can make my heart contract
They can make me foolishly act
that's a known fact

It's not a smile
that will me beguile
but a twinkle in an eye
that I espy

They say eyes are the reflections of the soul
maybe that can explain to me their romantic role
A wink, a blink can make my confidence rise or sink
I lose all ability to think

If you like me stare, flirt, emphasise
whatever you want just use your eyes
They have the power to hypnotise

I appreciate moderate constructive criticism
Editing stage: 


I very much like the construction and phrasing of your wording. It feels almost lyrical. There is nothing I would change. I usually quote back my favorite lines, but in the case of this piece, I like them all!

always, Cat
