Glassless Windows

Glassless Windows

A Chapter by Dr. YumnaKay
"

Experimental.

"




They say:
"Eyes are the windows 
to one's soul."

But my windows;
they're glassless,
with only a frame.

I let you see,
what I want
to be seen.

And I avert
my eyes away
from your face.

Because the darkness
of my soul ...
would consume you

Glassless.... Ah. Very nice. A nice poem, Yumna. Does this mean the glass of your eyes have already been shattered prior to this poem? I'd make a greek mythology reference but ah, theyre boring anyways. Sigh. Idk why, i just like this. Too relateable.... Sigh. :(

Yes, the eyes are the lamp of ones heart, anything that may go through can affect such emotions

Thank you for the appreciation. I'm glad you liked it :)
Beautifully written and melancholic at the same time, Yumna :-)
Quite an interesting take on eyes and it's beholder. I too somehow feel that eyes act as a window to one's soul but people tend to see on the basis of their own perceptions or by the way we are showing ourselves to them. I really liked the ending as it is giving out a very touching and heart felt reasoning.
I loved the fluidity and thought of this poem. Lovely piece :-) :-)

PS: Sometimes our writings too act as a window to our soul (just a thought)

Others can often see into a person's soul more than they realise... and what to the individual seems dark, can be warm, mysterious and arousing...

That's an interesting point. It could be if you have the eyes to see right through..

You are welcome ☺
this is certainly an introspective view of onself. i like the honesty and truth in this. the sad conclusion is a little unnerving. deep on many levels. a good, creative write!

Hmm. Slightly menacing!

No need for an edit. Perfectly fine as it is. Your theme is a common occurrence in everyday life. For whatever reasons, we humans are very efficient at covering up our true selves. And only revealing this true self to those we deem worthy of that knowledge.

A lovely take on a universal idea, with a beautiful picture to go alongside it. Nicely written.
