Piercing Blue Eyes

Piercing blue eyes-
once sharp like knives
(sharp enough to penetrate hearts)
are now only sharp enough to cut butter
and smooth it onto chocolate chip pancakes
as they sit at the counter in the diner
over coffee
discussing tales of fruitless relationships
and regrets about the things they said.
- How blind they were

PROMPT: take a cliche and exaggerate it to the point of absurdity.
