You Have Pretty Eyes

It’s not my duty to make a mark
To leave an imprint, to light a spark
I’m a passerby, I’ll be gone soon
An extra, animated cartoon
Our existence binds us together
Beasts on buses in winter weather
All trying to catch each other’s eye
Wondering when we’re going to die
I’ll never be your light in the dark
Or your saviour, your beautiful spark

    This is superb. I just LOVE the words “I’m a passerby, I’ll be gone soon, an extra, animated cartoon. Seriously this is so original and powerful. Love it.

  2. Wow! Rhyming is not as easy as people think, it’s extremely difficult to keep a balance and not end up writing a tacky cheesy poem. But this was spot on! Genius in its simplicity:) just lovely! Thank you for sharing.
