she had nice eyes,
the kind you liked to draw
with watercolor tears
and ink like the moon's
stolen glow.

he had memorized
her midnight lashes,
the half-closed shutters
and memories locked away
behind a pupil,
and his pencil was the
key.

yellow
were the specks in her
irises of emerald
springs;
everything she touched
turned into gold,
everything she touched
died
and rose anew
like budding flowers
after the blizzard.

his pencil
could never do the same,
he knew;
but he'd give those eyes away
for a dime apiece,
ignoring the fact
that ebony charcoal
and half-dried acrylics
were all that she would
ever be.

Hey. Mind if I print this out and stick it into a journal of sorts I'm keeping? (Crediting you of course.) Literature and images--my own, and select others'--that I've particularly enjoyed. I'm hoping it'll be kind of a lifelong project. If not, that's okay. But I'd love to put this in there, because I have so many many favourites on dA that I eventually forget about the pieces like this.
