Some Eyes

There are some eyes that you can’t look into,
When they are staring back at you,
They are so deep,
And when you try to go in,
A sudden electric current pushes you back,
And you have to look away.

There are some eyes that you cant look into,
When they are staring back at you,
They seem to be searching beneath you,
They seem to feel your darkest secrets,
They seem to find your flaws.
And a sudden thrill pushes you away.

There are some eyes you cant look into,
When they are staring back at you,
They are so perfect,
And when you try to explore them,
You feel so unworthy of the adventure,
That you have to look away.

There are some eyes that you cant look into,
When they are staring back at you,
They are so tempting,
Yet stubborn.
They urge you to make a move,
But then your body becomes still,
And the only gesture you give,
Is to look away.

There are some eyes that you cant look into,
When they are staring back at you,
And when you do,
You look away at once.

  1. Beautifully written, sensual, musical and emotionally intense. I like the combination of the eyes’ description and the feelings and thoughts they cause in the beholder. The repetition of the first verse in the beginning of each stanza helps increase the whole poem’s intensity plus the excellent choice of words such as “sudden electric current “, “feel your darkest secrets”, “sudden thrill”, “explore”, “tempting”, “unworthy of the adventure”, “body becomes still”. As a reader you feel deeply immersed in this poem, in some real deep eyes looking at the very inside of you. Lovely poem!

    1. I really don’t know what to say. I’m so humbled. I love insights, they just motivate and inspire something within me, and probably anyone who would just read your comment. I’m grateful for your lovely words.
