Dark Eyes

“Because daring to hope that you might get through it all when so many around you are dying sometimes… just feels too painful.

But that pain… you know that pain? That pain is hope, Molly. And it hurts. Because you don’t dare to feel it… in case it gets crushed. But if you can cling onto it, it can get you through the worst of times.”

A glance into her dark,
opal eyes massages dreams
out of reality,
relaxing time,
‘til the clock stops
—heart skips a few ticks—
and my jaw drops.
