Self Portrait

Dark chocolate tresses
Frame her sand colored skin
Her eyes expose a black hole within

Only when she writes
Does a light fill her eyes,
Revealing a plethora of possibilities
Held within her chrysalis

Prequels

Sequels

    Your poetry is breathtaking. I love the description of her eyes going from revealing emptiness and void to light of possibilities in writing. Very well done.
