What She Must Have Kept In Those Eyes Of Hers?

What She Must Have Kept In Those Eyes Of Hers? short poem

Difficult it was
To look into her eyes
Without getting mine moist.
Certainly messy, a refuge in dark glares
While bidding adieu.
And eyes won’t lie, you know?
Eyes, they conceal an ocean
Yet, just won’t stay quiet when we badly want them
It will give us up,
Like a jealous acquaintance.
Believe me,
Would have stayed off
A scenario so clumsy,
Yet, the faint flicker of hope
That she may still stay
Nudged me on;

Only to sit in silence
For an hour and half
Staring at the lonely Buddha
In the middle of the crimsoned lake
I didn’t move
When, with a gentle clasp and
What sounded like “Be Good”
She faded off into the setting sun.
Didn’t look at her at all.
Now, after all these years
Badly wanted to know
What she must have kept in those eyes of hers?

The Sea Soaked She And The Sun

The Sea Soaked She And The Sun ode

Away from the crowd She whispered her tale. To the cresting waves, To the frothy foam, To the flying seagulls, They knew her soul. They were waiting for her To wash her heart. She left the remains, She was carrying

Whats The Difference? long poem

The legato of language and lingo, The dance of diction and dialect — Have you ever considered the difference A little letter or two can effect? Texture of tense, Savor of sense, The nuance in a sentence — What’s really
