They say the eyes are the window to the soul
She must've had a beautiful soul
Because when I looked into her eyes, complicated galaxies stretched far within
Complicated, like the past
Like her broken smile once whole. Like her vacant stare once joyful
She was not only beautiful.
She was beautiful like sad art.
The kind that blows your mind
And rips up your heart.
There was light in her eyes
But there was also pain
So much pain that some days...
She wouldn't even look at me. Not able to expose herself.
Her eyes look at me no longer
No, she left like a thief in the night
Her eyes are still in my mind, however
And they haunt me at night.
I found a new pair of eyes for the day
And these eyes I know to be much better
For where I once saw sadness , pain
I now see light, hope, love
Moving on is never easy
But every passing day , the old eyes fade away
Till I am left only with lessons and memories
Thank you, stranger I once knew. Your broken eyes helped me make myself whole.
