"Bowing gratefully to all of my subjects, 'thank you. Thank you. The pleasure is mine." Nah, I'm just kidding. We're all kings together.'"

Knowing eyes look down on me
Almond shaped,
Liquid green
And somehow,
Hazel.
Sad
Brimming
Caring for all they see.
Beautiful
Tender
Knowing
And wise.
Vulnerable,
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.
Stupid.
Nobody wants to look into those eyes.
Who do these eyes belong to,
Nobody but me
It seems.

Most of my poems are about loss, it seems.

You will find as you look back upon your life that the moments when you have truly lived are the moments when you have done things in the spirit of love.
Henry Drummond

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. :)

Thank you so much :)

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

Thanks again :)

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.
