The Art Of Opia

I saw the truth in your eyes
The dark rim, the specks of ebony
The hint of gold, the tint of sorrow
The melody of kindness
The tragedy of emptiness
The restless child, the tired adult
The fiery passion, the creeping exhaustion
The bewitching beauty & the human imperfection.

I saw it all, in that one moment of intimacy
When the striking brown of your bright eyes met mine
And revealed an unspoken secret
That was the portrait of your enchanting soul.

There was no surge of butterflies
In the pits of my stomach.
Only a tinge of melancholy
A dull heartache
And calmness
Understanding and connection
In that moment
Knowing that
In a perfect world
We could’ve been something, you and I
How cruel this knowledge is
That our stars didn’t cross together but our paths surely did.
