Your Eyes

Your bright blue eyes sparkle and shine;
They pause for a while, and look into mine.

Like two glass spheres throwing crystal spears;
They're full of sea, and surf, and brine.

Thanks IEL!  I wrote this about the girl I liked at the time, but her eyes were brown, so I had to make some adjustments.
