Blue Eyes

Morgan Emerson


blue eyes searching

a sea of faces

but all they see

are empty spaces

pale eyes wander

through the rows

everyone wonders

but nobody knows

they look for a face

they're looking for him

but the more they search

their hope grows more dim

he didn't show up

he isn't there

he asked if it'd matter

i said i didn't care

but now i'm searching

for his soft blue eyes

i thought i saw them

i saw only lies
