Eyes Gleaming in the Consuming Pain

Eyes brimming dreams

Like mine long ago

Smiley with happiness so blind

High in hopes for an ambivalent future


Eyes so beaming it shadows diamond

Ignorant to its suffering

Full of loving pearls

Eyes, I once possessed


Eyes round like sweet chestnuts

Elated for the little it retains

In a continent of paucity

Eyes gleaming in the consuming pain.
