Her eyes own me­ by Michael Griffith

Her eyes own me

Her eyes own me­
that small smile ignites me
even the way she sits excites me

one hand held up as if a scepter or wand kept those fingers busy

busy as I wanted them to be in my hair
on my chest
down my stomach
down and
down

She owns me

I have given myself over to her
without being aware of her asking
