Lost eyes

Lost eyes

Your eyes are lost

and your mouth is shut tight

and your face is grim

because of the pain

you are feeling in your limbs

The countryside of green and mauve

you look at from the loopholes of your heart

is no longer a consolation

you long for brighter colours

for mountains and oceans and sacred towns

you long for the scent of flowers

and the feel of wide open fields

where you can lose yourself

and dance in the wind

and sing lullabies sweeter than those of birds
