Glassy Eyes

I fell for eyes of fire
Surprised to see me know
That playing with desire
Is what gives life a go.

But now the course is over
Those eyes have let me down
As darkness, lonely rover,
Has found no king to crown.

I've seen the empty stare,
Gliding to pass me by,
Of glassy eyes too bare
To care if I die.

Yet, under the lost gaze
Avoiding me with grace,
The Nothing set its maze
And caught me... way off base.
