we are nothing without our eyes

 

we are nothing without our eyes –

easily shown anger, or brazen lies,

pupils praise, or arrogantly despise.

 

such large scope, such small sphere,

eye informs brain, tests atmosphere:

calculates, calibrates, finally coheres.

 

eyes express, apertures amaze,

speak when I can’t find right phrase;

withering looks, making pride pay.

 

eyes grow weary, oft endless waiting,

steady your gaze, halt all hesitating –

blink and miss sweet gaze captivating.

 

what deep secrets half-shyly hid

behind long lashes, closed eyelid

  • what do eyes allow, what forbid?
