there exist no galaxies

in plain brown eyes

no specks of gold around the edges

no reflections of the world outside

nothing, save for whirlpools

of darkness enveloping anyone

who dares look inside

 


there exist no galaxies

in plain brown eyes

no mischievous gleam

no room for wonder

no margin of error

nothing, save for hurricanes

of certain demise waiting for anyone

who dares look inside

 


there exist no galaxies

in plain brown eyes

no sympathy

no mercy

no wholehearted apologies

nothing, save for oceans

of anguish drowning anyone

who dares look inside


The author's comments:

They say that eyes are the window to the soul, and this saying may be true, for I learned so much from a pair of lovely brown eyes.
