Whiskey Brown Eyes

I saw your whiskey brown eyes today staring at me from across the park. They were small and oddly shaped and I got lost. I got lost in the world that you saw behind those dark eerie whiskey eyes and lost in the world I hadn't even known existed.

Your eyes looked black, hollow, and unfeeling because that's how you felt. You were trapped in a place that your soul could never get out and you so ardently wanted to be free. You wanted to feel the breeze of the ocean and smell the smell of spring as you traveled from country to country.

Your whiskey brown eyes were made to see the world and fall in love with nature, not to be stuck in this place for the rest of your life. I felt your pain, because I too was lost.

I made my way over to you and stared deeply into your whiskey brown eyes.

You smiled at me and said "Isn't it funny how such a big world can have nothing in it?"

I thought your question odd but answered you anyway: "I think the world has plenty in it, but we never get the chance to experience any of it."

Your whiskey brown eyes filled with tears "You are quite wrong, because this world.....has nothing. And nothing shall it ever have."

You took your hand off your heart and got up and walked away from me. I realized your whiskey brown eyes mirrored your restless heart and this world had nothing to offer you.

Good one here. I can see this as the beginning of a long short story (if that makes sense) or what Torn has said, a novel even. Deep and thoughtful, especially the ending.

I love to write because I can be everything I'm not and everything that I am at the same time and no one knows but me.
