Dark eyes

What underlies these terrible eyes,
That greet me when I wake?
Panda eyed,
boy denied,
Look upon yourself.

Fate the cruel clock ticks,
hearing its heavy hammer hit,
like a second hand counting down:
days crash by,
Creeping up on me,
this premonitious destiny.

Dark eyes of an addict,
In public people stare,
Implicit questions there,
Their distance they’ll keep.
These eyes of me speak

What underlies these terrible eyes,
And what secrets they do keep.
