her eyes

The Same Difference by Phil Burns

her eyes by phil burns

she feels the heartache deep inside
she feels the wind blow through her eyes
she understands an elephant’s heart
she knows why he lies down and cries

she has a gently loving soul
she never intends to cause him pain
she knows that she has numbed his heart
like icy Scottish winter rain

she remembers when she was with him
he felt the sunshine of her smile
he basked in happiness and warmth
he worshipped her in style

he adored her laughter and her art
she laughed so much when she was there
she loved his funny accent
he loved her tangled mane of hair

and yet somehow they have parted
the distance is growing greater
she ponders if what came to pass
was inevitable sooner or later

she feels the heartache deep inside
she feels the wind blow through her eyes
she understands an elephant’s heart
she knows where he lies down and dies

An artist/writer/poet combination whose blogs reflect an approach to life that celebrates nature and takes a tongue-in-cheek view of most issues. So you get rhymes and doodles, photographs and comment. Irreverent and irrelevant. Occasionally funny, sometimes serious, mostly pointless. https://anelephantcant.me/
