Don’t-A Poem

Don’t look at me.

Don’t turn those big brown eyes on me

And make me feel again.

Don’t let me catch you staring

From across the room.

Don’t let your gaze lock on mine

So that my breath catches in my throat

And my heart breaks one more time.

Don’t meet my eyes,

And make me remember everything.

Your gaze holds all my memories,

The ones I cherish and the ones that cause me pain.

One glance from you, and I lose me.

So don’t look at me.

Just don’t.
