Brown Eyes

More than a camera captured your brown eyes,
Brown eyes so piercing that they bore through my most
Secret obsessions.

More than a camera captured your stare,
A wisp of insight, awareness, and strangely youthful wisdom,
And transfixed it for all the world to see, and marvel at.

More than a camera stripped bare your soul of innocence,
Replacing it with doubt.

More than a camera revealed you...a paradox;
A sage of years, yet no more than a child.
