Eyes of Freedom

Eyes of Freedom

A Poem by Heromen Selena

A rhythmic poem about how eyes can be exhilarating.


Blue like the lake reflecting the morning light

Grey like steep rocky mountain cliffs

Green like the delicate leaves of a rose

White like a brilliant lightning strike

That is the color of my freedom’s eyes


Surrounded by thick lashes

Framed by sharp eyebrows

Caressed by the soft curve of a smile

Enhanced by dark beauty marks on your cheeks

Those eyes reflect the hero sleeping within


Snatch my heart

Stop my breath

Calm my mind

Revive my soul

How I have loved nothing more than those eyes!


They say I’ll never leave you

They scream oh how much I love you

They whisper it’s okay to be afraid

You say that I will do everything for you

I will do anything to be with you


My heart aches to gaze into those eyes again

To trace the pattern of those lips with mine

My arms reaching out to hold you close

To feel the warmth of your skin against mine

I’m left with fading memories of what we have been


Because I know that the hurt fades

Because joy comes after the pain

Because I know my love will come back

Because I must wait for him

I will do so with bated breath


A statue I revert to when you are away

Shatters when lightning pierces into me

The stone washed away by the lake

My blood pumps anew as I dive off cliffs

And rose leaves carry me to my freedom

such an emotional read, nicely represented.

Like the wolf, imprinted. No other love can take that spot, even if death steals away the One. I enjoyed reading this devotional muse. And science says, emotions are simple chemical reactions to stimuli. However, life teaches us that science is a poor substitute in matters of the heart.

Deep and thoughtful. I loved the apt similes and metaphors you've used. I can feel and understand your emotions through your words.

A sad ending to the poetry. Death is a ending. A ending into the blackness of death. Always a pleasure to read your work dear friend. Thank you Heromen for sharing the amazing poetry.
