Through my eyes I see a situation
Through her eyes she sees the past
Through my eyes I see redemption, the kind that never last.
Your eyes can see right past me
Through my heart made of glass
My eyes are filled with sorrow
From pain that doesn't pass
My confusion steadily increasing
From something that I cannot grasp
My eyes consumed by anger
A disturbance that continues to last.

As my eyes begin to clear
Your eyes continue to shine
Blocking the emotions that binds me
I realize you’re not mine
Happiness is just a feeling that compresses my mind
A feeling that divides me and leaves part of me behind
Eyes that control me
Eyes that keep me weak
Eyes that pierce through my glass heart
Takes everything I was meant to keep.

Umm this is my first poem, just give me some feed back. This is a older poem from like 2 years ago, about my old relationship.

yeah, I love how there's a hidden story behind it that I don't know. If this is your first poem ever, Im extremely jealous.

My favorite quote is one by Albert Einstein-
"Learn from yesterday, Live for today, Hope for tomorrow."

Really cool piece of poetry. As I was reading it I felt like there was a lot more to this story, and it got me wondering, which is always good. This was a treat to read... Keep up the good work:)
