Love Has Deep Brown Eyes

By Rasha Ismail

Love has brown eyes
and it took me thirty years to realise.
A skin, a scent
a smile I recognise,
a knowing too real…
too real to analyse.
Love can paralyse,
a numbness too sweet to criticise.
A stillness,
a slow breath, a release
a succumbing with ease
a flow too strong to verbalise.
Love has deep brown eyes.
