The World In Words: Boy With the Blue Eyes


The Boy With the Blue Eyes
I admire you from afar,
from the color of your eyes, blue-green like the sea during a summer day
to the heart-shaped scar on your left forehead,
the way your jaw tenses up when you are angry
and your nervous habit of twirling a pen between two fingers.
Sometimes I feel as if I will lose you
like the pen that slips through your fingers,
I too, may slip from your heart.

(Dedicated to Sawyer)
