In Your Eyes

Most it seems are content
to engage in small talk
a verbal banter
like fighters in a contest
dancing around the ring
for a prize
that for the most part
is measured in bruises.
Though, if one explores
the depth of conversation
beyond the fringe areas
and past the fences
we build around our existence,
there lie treasures
that defy the imagination.
On one such journey
I happened to discover
in the tone of your voice
the pain of your eyes
and felt your hurt
in my heart.
