st. lucy's beauty

by Emily G Myers

he loved my eyes
windows to my soul
st. lucy's beauty

he said he loved my eyes
did he see my soul
glistening out the windows?

but my name's not baby
like he said
or lucy


he loved my eyes
windows to my soul
st. lucy's beauty

she plucked hers out
to keep him from loving her

maybe I should too
but I'm not a saint
and I liked it
when he called me baby
