The eyes are a window into the soul

The eyes are a window into the soul


I looked into your eyes and saw fragments of myself scattered within your iris.
They're blue.
Like a calm ocean gently kissing the shore. A slight breeze that sends goosebumps down your spine for no more than a split second.
Like a soft blanket that wraps around you on a stormy night. A safety net for when the sadness comes and you need to feel love.
Like a sunny morning signifying fresh starts, happiness and hope. A bird flying high and free showing you what you could do - be - if only you open the cage.

They're blue.
But they say the eyes are the window into the soul
and underneath lies kindness
strength
love
softness
they're blue, but they're so much more than that.

fun fact: the first line came to me in my sleep at like 3am this morning. I built the rest around it. It's probably not great but I just wanted to share the first line. I think it'll work better in a poem which I'm excited to write now!!

  1. This was lovely to read! I love that first line - why does inspiration always hit at the strangest of times? I look forward to reading your poem if you decide to share it with us :)
