You see it flicker past
The darkness of the eyes,
A little light behind
That proves there’s life
And joy and pain and more.
I’ve watched quite a few films and programmes recently where the cameraman has been a bit arty and they have spent entire scenes focused really closely on the actor’s face.
You would think that it would be really boring to just look at a face at the expense of everything else that is going on around the character, but I’ve noticed it’s quite the opposite.
There is something so fascinating about the eyes. They can give away any feeling someone is experiencing no matter how confidently they try to cover it. Sadness, panic, confusion – it’s all there.
They always say that the eyes are the window to the soul and I think there’s truth in that. I would even go as far as to say that I get good feelings that I will like somebody because they have kind eyes.
Next time you’re unsure of somebody, take a proper look into their eyes. It will probably tell you all you need to know.
