Big Eyes
by Lucy Tonic

Even as a child
You always had those bright, big eyes
And what I wouldn't give now to see
Those bright, big eyes again
I was never a good match
Still settled just to hear you laugh
But even in your widest smile
Your eyes were fixed on your lost child
How can someone who emits such light
Be magnetized to their demise
I wish I had the chance to tell you
The abyss has stared back at me too

      Enquanto a cara é a nossa máscara, os olhos são o espelho da alma. É um poema muito triste sobre a perda de uma criança ou da própria criança interior. Os "olhos" da imagem não me parecem alegres nem tristes, são inexpressivos, o nariz acrescenta um que de graça. :)

      Je ne trouve pas que les "Yeux " soient droles .Ils me font penser a une mante religieuse.

      Les mots me semblent révéler une profonde tristesse encontraste avec cette photo tellement drôle... A moins que ces deux grands yeux soient noyés dans les rayures des larmes

      Funny that someone thought to add the nose... nicely done with the photo!

      Ah, conjurs images of John Lennon for me. And I must admit this makes me sad. Oh well.
