Brown Eyes

They say I’m as sweet as chocolate,

Not even the dark kind,

But with caramel droplets

That would make others blind.

They think I’m as strong as coffee –

Not as much as espresso…

Maybe a latte kissing toffee?

Still, I energize presto.

Truth is, I’m as bitter

As unsweetened cocoa.

Or flowers that wither,

That come and then go.

As unforgiving and hard

As crystallized amber

That turns a fly charred

And locks it in forever.

Yet – whatever I’ve seen,

There is also some green.

“You just have to be very close,”

He said.
