From the Nose up

From the Nose up

A Poem by Crowley
"

I know it is bordering on illegal to write yet another poem about eyes....so arrest me, I can't help if they are my favorite, I am a mortal after all, and on top of that a male...string me up.

"

From the Nose Up

 

Liquid and lingual, rimmed in brown sugar and molasses

Deep and cautious, darting with well intentioned mistrust

Light reflects a million different epic movies, mindful, flickering

Narrowed and unsure of my surly intent, lustful gaze

 

Look past my imperfections, I’m here breathing

Look past my sketchy past, I’m here being born

Look past my need to be a man, I’m here desiring attention

 

Your eyes

Your way

My want

My day

 

Looking into them, I can see myself in the universe

- i wrote - and entire ode - to hazy, crazy eyes once - and i'd be happily imprisoned for it - but before that - i have to say - that these are eyes like i've never read before - i recently got a tattoo - of a pair of divine eyes - and over the years i have lived - i have looked into a lot of mortal eyes - and they never came alive - quite in the same way - as they do in the delicateness and beauty of your words!

ps: agree with all my heart - with the author's note - and what a stunning review has sire left!!! :)

The first stanza of this poem is beautiful in its descriptiveness, making the reader feel as though they can see what you see and reminding us how powerful the human eye can be. The second stanza is both intriguing and flawless.

Eyes are everything - the best gauge of character, the sexiest part of the body (open or closed), the window to intellect. Your poem draws attention to this feature and you sum up their attraction in the final line.

. strongly recommended by emmah ... and i can see why ... if you said these words to a girl ... she would definitely suffer from a certain weakness in her knees ... :P ... and in your voice ... well ... uhm ... yes ... and she would also be speechless ... for me what is absolutely exotic about this poem is the sense of bursting into poetry ... especially at the point when you mention 'your eyes' ... we may play silly all we want but you have a grand poetic sense about you, corey ... and that really makes your poetry very classic in its appeal ... of course ... your rendition is very unique ... nothing typical about it ... glad i didn't miss this, so thank you em, and of course, ed's words on this are truly special ... :) ...

I like this. It's short and true. I like the descriptive imagery in the beginning leading to what you want the eyes to see. Nicely done. Very cool.

So, as it turns out, the eyes have it!

well why is that so bad/ like you underlining explained here/ eyes are the window to the soul

I really enjoy that first stanza. The rest I'm not quite sure about, but you have some wonderful images in those first lines.
