Eye Color

It carries with it, connotations of vibrancy, freshness, renewal, sustainability, health. All this is reminiscent of us, how we are; How our new love sprang shortly after Easter, Two days after 4/2/0. It’s the eye color we share, Like long stares, up stairs In my room in the attic. The canopy of the house; The leaves and branches of the tree we dwelled in It is the staggering ignorance we faced When we decided to take a chance, But even in our unversed status, We persevered. It is the envy I recognized When I first saw you. The attention, the conversation, the consideration You gave onto others, I wished for myself. And that compelled me so, I knew I had only one choice. Now or never, The light changed. Go!
