Lament or Happiness Laced


Those eyes were filled to the brim
and it was a matter time
before the tears would spill
from the edges of her doe shaped rim

And I stood there helpless and agape,
unsure whether I could
embrace the storm,
or would I be able to escape the norm?

For I was unsure
what those droplets were,
was it a downpour of lament eyes
or happiness flowing with aplomb
