These Eyes I Have Known Before

These eyes I have known before
but, unlike countless others, I can't ignore
these icy blues with snowy whites
that hold me firm within their sight
and pin me to the floor.

No-- these eyes are more, much more
than the many weaker ones that I have known before
no-- these eyes are unquestionably stronger
than the countless others (though, I've known them longer)
and cannot their gaze ignore.

Yes, these eyes I have known before
yet, I do not know what they hold in store
for me and my dual browns
these eyes, content to stare me down
pinned upon the floor.
