Eyes Like Dirt

Eyes Like Dirt

A Poem by Lexi Richard

Eyes like gems, green and blue
dazzle like a dream
they steal your breath
and stop your heart,
but you've got no need to worry

Your eyes are like dirt,
but the good kind,
like soil that's mineral rich
they're soft and brown,
deep and round,
and mysterious like a myth

They're like bark on willow trees,
and like chocolates on Valentine's Day
they're my iced mocha drink,
smooth as ink,
and like dirt in early May

They warm me from the inside out
and never pierce my skin
they're gentle as deer,
never cause fear,
and look like dirt as fall begins

Your eyes could be as blue as the sky
or green as seaweed off shore
but you've got eyes the color of dirt
and I've never loved a color more

-l.r.
