Komorebi

“Behind the most beautiful eyes lay secrets deeper and darker than the mysterious sea…” -yld

Our eyes…two mesmerizing windows to the soul, guards to the heart and lie detectors of the mind. 

Some say that the smile is the facial feature that’s noticed first when meeting someone for the first time, I however have always noticed the eyes first. For whatever reason my attention is automatically drawn to the eyes, their color..shape..and the intensity of their sparkle. While a smile can cause one to do a double-take *especially when dimples reveal themselves*, it can also be faked. Anyone can fake a smile, some of us have even mastered the art of the fake smile. The eyes though, they weren’t designed to lie or hide, those are simply two capabilities they won’t ever possess. 

If you were to ask me how I’m doing, I could deliver a smile that says *I’m fan-frickin-tastic*, my eyes however, would shout *she’s lying her ass off, she’s not fine, she doesn’t want to/ won’t talk about it because she’s stubborn*. Most of us can resonate, especially if you’re a guarded soul.

Lying eyes have dilated pupils… Honest eyes are balanced. 

Deceitful eyes are hardend and cold… Genuine eyes are brilliant and comforting.

Then there’s the sparkle. A brightly luminated sparkle signifies true happiness/ love while a dimmed sparkle holds pain/ loneliness.

Eyes that often look down or away, avoiding total eye contact, hold scars and demons. We avoid that contact with a fellow human because we don’t want them to see the dark beyond the faded komorebi. For complete eye contact there needs to be a sense of trust.

“When you feel my heat
Look into my eyes
It’s where my demons hide
Don’t get too close
It’s dark inside
It’s where my demons hide…” – Imagine Dragons


A picture has a value of a thousand words… Well, the words held within a stranger’s eyes are priceless. The question is, can you hear what they’re saying?
