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.
