Archive for the tag “eyes”

stepping outside your comfort zone

those tears in my eyes
they’re from the wind or the cold
or the memory of how you used to be
but never never never
from my own limitations
staring right through me
my inner self
neither applauding nor pitying
my outer self
neither smiling nor frowning
but merely acknowledging
and accepting
the very idea that my eyes
may suddenly become animated
at the most unexpected times

november two thousand eighteen
