In Your Eyes
in the bluest eyes
held in acceptance.
I saw a kindred spirit
who knew all too well
the frazzled threads of
all I wish to be, all I ever was
and the darkness I fought
to free myself from.
In your eyes, I saw
A bond of eternal, maternal
hunger to feed the child within
who never knew there was a place
such as this, where all sins are wiped away
ashes scattered at the mercy of a timeless wind
and I could be as I am, imperfect, wandering
often lost .
In your eyes, I saw eternity.
