Glaring Eyes and Smiles

Glaring Eyes and Smiles

A Poem by that-little-green-monster

Fictional Poem.

Glaring eyes,
From across the room.
You try to hide it with a smile.

Glaring eyes and smiles,
A frightening combination.
Knowing your showing a different emotion,
Than what's bubbling inside your soul.

Glaring eyes,
Piercing through the darkness.
Cutting through the light.
Each tell a different story, 
One hiding something not meant to see,
The other flaunting everything.

Glaring eyes and smiles,
I'm afraid of what they mean

I liked this poem, again it was genuine and heartfelt, you write with such an understanding of how things work and express it so well.

I love the way you expressed this concept! When the expression in the eyes doesn't match the smile, it's very disconcerting, to say the least! I love those two lines"One hiding something not meant to see, the other flaunting everything. Actually, I love that whole stanza! The only grammatical error I saw was in line 6. Should be you're, not your I am not certain if the word, "bubbling" fits in line 7. It seems the glaring eyes are showing the true aspect to this person, so I don't think they would be bubbling. Maybe Lurking? Or?? Great write!
