Brown eyes

Brown eyes

A Poem by Nix is typing...

A poem about a simple girl, with black hair and brown eyes.


Just another girl with black hair

and brown eyes,

Never seems to be noticed by the other 


Insecure and always feeling


Wondering if my heart will ever find 

A home

Wishing, wanting, waiting

For someone to notice


The invisible girl 

With black hair

And brown eyes

You see?

I just want someone

To listen to me

I just want someone

To say they love me

I just want someone

Who doesn't drool over a blonde

I just want someone

Who can correspond

With my thoughts


Who likes brown eyes

I just want someone tall

Someone that'll listen

And that says it all

I have brown eyes

And black hair

I'll look in the mirror

And think

"Who's she?"

"Who's that ugly girl staring back at me?"

"Oh, wait, that's me."

You know,

I've been told that I'm pretty

I've been told that I'm "thick"

But then my brain'll fight with my heart

And they like to start a major conflict

I can't control what goes on in someone's head

But I'm just a girl with black hair

Black, not red

I can't control whether or not I have dimples

But I have brown eyes,

Yeah, plain and simple


I'm just a girl

With black hair

and brown eyes

I liked the honest tone to the world. I like being left alone. Attention is hard work. Thank you dear poet for sharing your amazing words and thoughts.

I tried to. Also. We must ensure our words can be understood. You are welcome dear poet.
I read this yesterday but my response got lost in the ether. The site is playing up. Anyway, I came back for seconds and to say I thought you expressed your emotions well in your poem. You know, I don't like mirrors either.

Simply being female is a huge advantage in the dating game. If you have enough patience to ignore the jerks, online dating can lead to some pretty amazing experiences.

“Whenever women have insisted on absolute equality with men, they have invariably wound up with the dirty end of the stick. What they are and what they can do makes them superior to men, and their proper tactic is to demand special privileges, all the traffic will bear. They should never settle merely for equality. For women, 'equality' is a disaster.”
― Robert A. Heinlein

Hair color has nothing to do with it, personality rules it all. Also being shy doesn't help.
I was really shy growing up and i never spoke to anyone. I was the Basket case like you see
in the Breakfast Club movie. I was a weirdo.

One day I just snapped and said no more.
I came out of my shell, took a few adult classes along with speech and drama and well
that got me out of my shell really fast. I found out I had talent from my drama teacher,
now I act in plays here in town. I love it. Hang in there it will get better.

From one brown eyed girl to another - the shade of our eyes is TERRIBLY underrated and I'm angry at society for creating standards in which brown eyes and dark hair aren't deemed beautiful. BECAUSE THEY ARE! And you're beautiful! And so are your soul and talent! Keep your chin up lady - you're a brilliant f*****g poet!

You're very young, which is not a bad thing. It's actually a good thing.
So beautifully written bestie! You have quite a talent of conveying honestly through poetry, and it's great to see people being real. The world we live in wants us to fake it and just smile cause that's right, but these are deep thoughts that we all often wonder. Quite relatable, and beautiful :)

Great poem. This says a lot about how you see yourself, and how you believe other see you.
To me, there is a person out there for everyone. So, I have no doubt that your heart "will find a home" one day.
Thanks for Sharing=-)
