Don't Look At Me


Don't look at me,
with those dark weightless eyes,
you know very well,
I can't deny them.
I notice that soft curve,
on the edge of your mouth,
I notice how different,
your eyes look upon me.
I see that longing,
the deep pain in your eyes,
the way you look up,
as I walk on by.
I never really noticed,
the pain in my heart,
that hurts more and more,
when you're in my sight.
The longing you have,
is a longing we share,
but nothing we want,
can ever be there.
My heart has a hole,
from when you were there,
it burns inside me,
without a care.
You took a torch,
and lit my heart on fire,
only to watch it,
burn to ashes.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Conscience is instinct bred in the house,
Feeling and Thinking propagate the sin
By an unnatural breeding in and in.
I say, Turn it out doors,
Into the moors.
