"I do not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it."
~Voltaire


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.

Writers are a less dangerous version of the career criminal. Everywhere they go, they see the potential for the perfect crime. The difference is that writers have better self control.

I really like the third line.

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.
