The Eyes – Written Monday 28th June 1999 (Aged 24)

The Eyes

when the eyes –
close their lids
there is still sadness in them
a sadness that never lies
it never moves on,
it will never hide,
open their eyes
the reflection of sadness –
is never missed
it is always there
it is the haunting –
in a persons stare
the sadness is always there
it has not moved
it never really does
whether the eyes are closed –
or they are open wide
the sadness, it does not hide

James Garratt – Monday 28th June 1999
