It would seem, initially,
that no visible light ever reaches your eyes.

But second chances are easily yours,
with that black light gaze
that sends a beam of heat this way,

and I think you should note,
That those dark eyes shouldn't
hold to one subject for too long,
what with my mind coming alive
and my thoughts fluorescing.

I’m tempted to shy away,
under your ultraviolet intensity, but no.
Your eyes are dark.

But they aren't the darkness of black holes–
And their depth doesn’t scare me.
