Today’s prompt – Heaven in her eyes

My Submission:

When she smiled, her eyes shrunk to slits.

Yet, they still managed to illuminate a room. 

They lit my heart on fire on our first date. 

Every time she smiled, I smiled.

I couldn’t help it.

That smile, which slivered her eyes, was contagious.

I thought I saw heaven.

We began dating.

She was sweet, doting, selfless and full of passion.

And when I looked into her hazel eyes, 

I thought I saw heaven.

Then, something changed. 

She turned cruel, callous, unkind.

Even though she donned the same smile,

The light in her eyes began to fade.

They became dark, ominous, conniving.

Though I once believed in heaven,

I’m not so sure anymore.

  1. Sara, I read your submission earlier today when I did not have the photo. I greatly enjoy your post, yet it makes even more sense when I see the photo. You describe well how a person, a relationship can change.
