Behind These Eyes

Behind These Eyes

A Poem by Diane

A powerful organ is the eyes..they hold a lifetime of love or loss...


My eyes are the window through which I see

What people really think of me

They show sadness and laughter and sadness to

Behind your eyes is the real you


Don't try to fake what you really mean

Many lies in life Iv'e seen

Covering up some sordid affair

Or trying to fool someone with a stare


The eyes are a kaleidescope of colours

Like looking through an endless tube

You may fool yourself but you won't fool others

The eyes will make a fool of you...

Good rhythm and flow to this poem.

The focus of the poem is well delivered.

What can the "eyes" tell us of the future?

They say eyes are the windows of the soul and I certainly believe that. Eyes are the first thing I notice in someone. Eyes are much easier to read I think than body language. You can control body language if you are aware of it, but you can't hide what eyes are saying.

I liked this insight (parden the pun) you have penned here!

Its good to be back here and catching up with some old friends.

Love and Light

Its a beautiful poem, loved the way it flowed, think you reapeated a word here though.
They show sadness and laughter and sadness to sadness twice.
Unless you wanted it that way.

Keep writing. Dawn
