Blank Blue Eyes

Tears collide as I frown
Glistening eyes, glassy and grey
Tears slide down my cheeks,
As my face fades away
I find myself, collapsing down
Happiness shines bright,
As the glare reflects in my eyes
I look away,
It is too much for my sadness to take
My mouth is gone,
My nose has melted away,
For all that's left
Are my eyes
And what they see
Is by-far too much to take
So again,
Like waterfalls
Salty teardrops fall and fall
As I see
A blurred, shaky
Image of a broken heart,
That lye in pieces ,
No longer together
Mascara and eye liner washed away
Blank blue eyes
Fade,
To grey
As sadness unfolds,
My heart has been ripped away

I like the detail use a lot, you pictured the scene very clearly. It was full of depth and emotions we all feel once in a while. That's why I can say that I relate to this easily. I like it how it was so poetic but still so simple ^_^ Keep up the great work, defenitly a 5 stars rating :D Thanks for sharing this.

As I know, blue eyes do fade to grey, just like our moods, we have. I LOVE IT!
