¨The space in between your comfort zone and your dreams is where life takes place.¨
-Helen Keller


bluish green,

woody brown,

cloudy gray,

hazel speckled with bright gold,

pure emerald-

Life sparkles

within their pupils, irises, crinkles when you smile-

infinite stories

hidden inside

the most expressive organ

your eyes 

really do

tell the story- your stuggles, victories, heartbreak, hope,

unique (totally)


the dreams that spiral into reality, the ones that fade into oblivion

the love that giggles in the classroom, the type with gentle kisses

the hatred, quiet in the dark, the kind expressed out loud

the hope for the distant future, foggy with time, and hope for the present, clear and bright

life, unerasable


your Eyes,

turquoise-ocean rimmed with navy

reflecting the fall leaves

laughing behind your hands

crying during a sad movie


your Eyes,

dark chocolate- almost black

glitter with the glare of fresh snow

scanning articles about your favorite shows

stirring cake batter in my kitchen


your Eyes,

sky-blue speckled with denim

shining under the mountain sunset

squinting under the weight of a tree

cackling at a dad joke


your Eyes,

chestnut in the sun, with glints of green

laughing while we waltz under the flourescent lights

red after sobbing into my shoulder

excited at finding a new book


my Eyes,

gray-blue with green smatters

hoping to see you all soon

even if it's on the other side

missing you, and your beautiful, wonderful, exquisite eyes. I'll see you again, 

i promise.
