I woke this morning to swollen eyes.
A haunting darkness encircles them,
the residual of the tears that had been shed the previous evening.
What sadness has stolen the bright smiling blue eyes
that normally highlight my face?
Nothing particularly dainty or pretty about my look,
but rather disappointment and distress.
I can only feel the torment that tantalizes my heart
while I try sorting out my confusion.
