The Eyes That See

September 21, 2010
Knowing eyes look down on me
Almond shaped,
Liquid green
And somehow,
Caring for all they see.
And wise.
With betrayal and hurt
from long ago
And heart-heartbreakingly recent.
Hoping to find an
alike soul
to share secrets
and to love forever.
Soul aching.
Nobody wants to look into those eyes.
Who do these eyes belong to,
Nobody but me
It seems.

I love this poem. :)

I hope when my true love looks into my eyes, he sees all the stuff that you said in this poem. :)

I feel this poem perfectly describes me too. :)

Another beautiful poem, Stargirl. You gave the eyes such personality and complexity. The eyes are the windows to the soul, it seems; it takes great talent to give such a personality to a soul. Well done.

Thank you so much :)

You're the first person to really, thoughtfully praise my writing! (Well, besides my Mom, at least.)

Thanks again :)
