It’s in the Eyes

The pearls we see in another person eyes
The passion we see that has died.
Both consuming and pulling, the onlookers in
Further in
with each silent staring moment.
This is the by-product
That leads to questions.
Questions of our quality of life
Not the length of it
Questions of our dimming passions
Not the measure of it
Questions that scare us
To live fully
Questions that scare us
To die in essence.
Therefore, the eyes
We look deeply into
sometime a smoking mirror of wishing
Other times it’s a reflection
Of what lay dormant in our heart
One time it was what
We feared the most.
Eyes that looked back
Screaming I love you
Shouting you are worthy
Whispering you are not your mistakes.

With eyes wide open
What will you see
With eyes wide open
What don’t you want to be seen…

  1. What a jewel. I love your conversation and your friendship my brother. It’s an honor to be a part of your world. Continue the good work. I live to read more and digest the love and knowledge you share so very freely.
