Only in Your Eyes

Your eyes are pools of love

Sharing joy in abundance

Brightening the environment


Now you cast your icy stare

As I wait in tense anticipation

For your severe words


Later you have a glassy expression,

Which terrifies me

And sends me to the corner

Of a loveless world

  1. How sad. Eyes can tear us down and build us up, and all too often, they can do both, at uncertain intervals, leaving us hungry and never satisfied. Lots of feeling in this little poem – I feel it!
