Eyes

They say eyes are the windows to the soul
but I have always wondered about the pupil.
The iris fits the saying wonderfully,
each a stained glass portrait of our own galaxy,
but there is always that black pit at the center,
the ever dark hole where sunlight enters.
Perhaps we all house shadows at our core.
and darkness is the heart of our nature.
