Eyes - Poem by Andrew Sutcliffe

I decided to discern
The color of your fathomless urns,
Which dance and laugh,
As the world goes past

With this object in mind,
I plunged as one blind
Into the crystal orbs,
That opened like doors

They accepted me with grace,
And leapt off your face,
Scintillating with unleashed thought
As if a sunbeam had been caught

Swirling my Self through space,
Flying along at a musical pace,
Delving into laughter,
I plunged faster and faster,

Soaring past vibrant bursts
Of giant long lasting fireworks,
My soul became lost,
And my questions went aloft


The moment is gone
Like the sinking of dawn,
And I still don’t see
The answer to the mystery
