There Are No Eyes Like Yours

There Are No Eyes Like Yours

i thought i knew
what your eyes looked like
even when their longing has faded.

there are no eyes like yours,
and no eyes like mine,
that’s why i was so sure
i knew.

and there are eyes that die
because they’re empty,
and devoid of light.

maybe because
it was stolen, or
maybe because
it was snuffed,

but mine was willingly given
away in the hopes of brightening yours

β€”the fact that our eyes
mirror each other, now,
is no fault of mine, perhaps
you’ll understand why

my eyes
are dry β€”

i shed no tear for what’s
no longer mine.

β€” A. P.
