darkness has your eyes

darkness has your eyes

A Poem by Nico
"

a one way romance and trying to let go.....to realize the reality and accepting it is sometimes so very difficult to do.......even if you know you can never have her...and probably never did.......

"

I've strongly thought about you
I've continuously had you on my mind
I've tried to bring
you back to me...
I imagine bringing you back
to me at any cost

 

I have always kept
bright white lights on
in the fog in order
not to loose each other anymore,
how many useless defenses I've erected
I did not want to succumb to your spell.

 

now that darkness has your eyes
I don't sleep anymore at night
your incredible azzuri eyes
are so beautiful, they bring tears to my eyes
but rarely are they serene.

 

darkness has your eyes
you are the only one
with such beautiful eyes
how will I ever manage
not to look at them anymore...

 

I have loved you
but I have exaggerated
you have captured my whole broken heart
my every breathe was in your hands
you left me hopelessly in despair
and therefore, with a heavy heart

I fill those prairie sands

with anger filled footprints

which you ignore to follow....

 

maybe I should try
to convince myself

that I must forget you,

to take down those fences

that never captured you,

and try to clear my mind of you,

so that the darkness no longer

brings me to those beautiful azzuri eyes......

how will I ever manage
not to have them to admire anymore...

This is a feeling - well expressed - that we can all relate too - one in which only one is truly enamoured with the other or is even willing to give what is necessary to sustain a relationship. A melancholic tune I feel for the narrator of this work. Thank you.
Light,

This poem details an all too familiar feeling that I think everyone has felt at least once in their lives. I like how the writer tries to convince himself that he can overcome it but then comes back around to that one focal point--the eyes. The eyes are the window to the soul and they are indeed hard to forget.

This is very well written and filled with emotion. Thank you for sending it to me. I loved it.

I like the format of the poem and how you seem to focus mainly on the eyes. It seems kind of like an obsessed love. Really nicely done.

I know how hard it is to try to let go of a deep love. It takes someone really special to fill that gap in your heart. Hope you find that perfect person soon.

Oh, how this is so painful and something we've all managed to endure! This poem captures a lifetime of hurt. Very excellent.

Wow. I'm in awe of this... I know this. It's me. This is a new favorite. I couldn't think to change a word.

Last two stanzas are relateable to me, excellent, felt the mind lure and the emptiness of letting her go after holding her and dreaming about her in your mind for so long. Great share.

This touched me.. for I have been in love this way, without getting anything in return.
Loving someone from afar..infatuation.. very melancholic.

Write on,
Melba
