Ode To A Woman In Need

Updated on January 01, 2010

Ode to a woman in need.

 

 

In the

opaque

depths

of two

orbicular pools

one might

notice that

emotions often

well up there 
or take

shelter under

the flesh petal

hoods that

guard the

flowers of
her irises.

 

Within these

windows to

the gardens

of her mind 
there lie worlds
that few

could visualize
places she

has stared

out of
and will

never go

back to.
losses reflected

in the studying

done by
her two pupils
as they

refracted her

pain into

manageable parts
in the form of
glinting tears
crystallizing

on her cheeks.

 

But there

is also
love and

beauty within

those eyes,
they have

captured imaginations,

stolen even

the strongest

of hearts

and made men

willing to sacrifice all

to behold their gaze,
and when they gaze on you
with the full strength
of that combination
you are flung helpless
into their void
and swept away.
