Blue Eyes That Only You Have

by Yuu Ikeda

the faint and white sun is reflected in a frozen puddle.

can the weak light thaw the frozen puddle?

i feel that i'm looking at your eyes that

suppress every emotion.

the sole faint light of hope in it.

the cold shroud that hides even the light

is beautiful overwhelmingly.

cruel eyes. lonely eyes.

blue and vulnerable eyes.
