Eyes


Don't act according to eyes, don't listen to them
Eyes will cheat you

They will mesmerize you while you are awake
They'll mesmerize you while you are awake and ruin your sleep
Eyes will cheat you

Eyes don't differentiate between good and bad, loved ones and strangers
They just love to sting

Their poison is intoxicating
Eyes show you rainbows in clouds which rain till morning
They will show you rainbows and drive you mad
Eyes will cheat you

Eyes will take you to heaven at night
Show you dreams of rain filled clouds and greenery

Don't believe the word of eyes
There's no record, no receipt, no letter to attest what they have promised
All their words are not to be trusted

They can bring rain without clouds
They will bring rain without clouds, they will drive you mad

Eyes will cheat you

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
