Eyes are physical, emotional, sarcastic and metaphorical.

Captor of life
Definer of detail
Enclosed in a box
Chiseled into memories

Eyes looking into each other
Welcoming the others sight
Light hits your pupils
Projecting colors, answers, flight
Arresting movement
Frozen in ice
Then the wind blows
Connection fails
They've gone away

Snake eyes
Lies, misfortune
Traveling backwards
Red skies
Fantasy, mystery
Majesty, misery
Venomous lips
Razor blade tongue
Hideous hiss
Eyes turn to stone

I can see out of the palm of my hand
Looking at the eyes on the floor where i stand
All of the windows
All of the walls
Are eye lashes on the greatest eye of them all
The same eye that you see when your eyes are closed

When your heart stops and the heavens unfold

The one you find when you look past your mind
In between the walls and windows
