Dark Eyed Mystery

She didn’t say much

It was a just a look

In that moment exposed

I saw everything


A smile led me off track

Purposeful and distracting

Shards of blunted mystery

Sliced through the metaphor


Beauty often shines after rain

Life grows beneath the pain

Sunlight might scatter the pests

If untended they often bring death


But in that moment revealed

She showed what she chose

To live, breathe, and thrive

When she easily could have died


Circles of color and depth

Refract in just the right light

A fighter beneath the beauty

Soul gnashing at the night
