Green Eyes




A green and white ocean. 

I think of your eyes
and go weak at the knees
because your green orbs
are an enchanting tease.

The colour of emeralds,
they’re precious gems
but also the source
from which jealousy stems.

The green-eyed monster
symbolised by this beryl
can break up romance
and put love in peril.

But for me they are like
a green and white ocean 
tumultuous at times
yet full of emotion.

To dive into its depth
and be swept by the waves
is what a lover dreams
and secretly craves.
