In Your Eyes


Each and every new day that dawns my fascination grows

With the mystical magic of our windows to the soul

These miracles of vision bestowed so graciously upon us

Never ending is my astonishment in what their beauty shows


They exist in a myriad of colors, with which to view the world

An inner beauty can be revealed and endless stories will be told

As if looked upon and reflected from unblemished mirrored glass

A treasure trove of heavy truths and secrets visually unfurled


Upon closer contemplation boundless knowledge can be gained

I cast my gaze upon the all telling orbs and examine close

As everything held behind them unfolds so entirely before me

Every fact and falsity instantly and unquestionably unchained


Anger can never be hidden and inner peace shines ever so bright

Honesty will be rewarded as surely as a liars eyes betray them

Fatigue is cast aglow in red as alertness gleams in dazzling purity

Hatred glows in fires dance as love will shine in brilliant white


Open wide to reveal a boundless universe brimming with mystery

As rivers flow to portray our sadness and a heartache unrelenting

True happiness and joy burn with the brightness of a furious sun

Future can be glimpsed fleetingly in the images of age old history


Now as I focus my concentration to the infinite abyss of your eyes

I look upon this endless ocean of the most fragile vulnerabilities

Combined with strengths beyond imagination yet un-harvested

So easily visible in the reflections as far reaching as eternal skies.


A radiance right before me, I behold the look of crystal clarity

Any attempts to conceal their perfection are sheer impossibility

My contemplations of both absolute truth and flawless beauty

Convinces me completely such exquisite depth is ever a rarity.


Oh how I yearn to be lost entirely and eternally in YOUR EYES

  1. As always, your perfection was well worth waiting for. Exquisite portrayal of what our eyes reveal and what we hope to find. Even though I do think this poem gives hint of a secret you have that your eyes will not spill??? Thank you for another excellent piece that I will be revisiting for a long time to come. And please, stop setting the bar so DAMNED high!! Remember, some of us are not perfectionists — we’re emotionalists!!! 😉

      • That may be where it’s born, but perhaps I would do better to let it stew a while before I just spew it all out on paper!!!

      • See……and I wish to have the words spill forth so beautifully, fluidly, and prolifically as you my dear. The grass truly is greener on the other side of the fence. So you know what that means? Yep, it is time to remove the fence. LOL. Write together that is.

      • I honestly don’t think we’ve ever had a fence between us!! But I do agree it is time to put our words together. 😉

    • Thanks Hasty. I have always been drawn in by the beauty and mystery of a woman’s eyes. And I could gaze a lifetime into your baby blues. Hope that’s not over stepping. Just sayin is all……………..Take care and Keep Inspiring
