You can tell that he
has been thinking
hard about life, leaving
everything else behind.
The bags beneath his eyes
are packed and ready to go,
prepared to let the whole
world know that he's got
something heavy on his mind.

I struggled a bit with the line breaks, but I'm just going to step back now.
There was this poem earlier- "Trust"? And this is me going back to explore that "bags under the eyes" concept.

i like this. maybe because i always have bags under my eyes and something on my mind? haha. but anyway, this is lovely and i like the play on other types of "bags," packed and ready to go.
