3. Eyes - Poem by Albert Johnson

Old photos show adoring eyes
Toward your newborn child.

Blink

Old memories hold a picture of clouded eyes
Disturbed.

Disturbed turned to rage.
I cowered from those eyes.

Blink

After the storm,
the penance,
Shame in your eyes.

Blink

Eagle eyes watching every move.
I was intimidated.

Blink

The distant look, eyes far away.
Reliving? Remembering? Regretting?

Blink

When we say good bye,
Wanting to speak love,
An awkward touch, instead.

I see a tiny tear in the corner of
Your eye.
It speaks.
