Treasure Island

Brittney Pennington

(19/12/1991 / Crourd 'd lane)

Eyes


Eyes are the tunnels to the soul
Some are deep with care and understanding
Others are shallow and easy to read
Then there are those that arefull of mischief and misleading

Bat all eyes lead to the same place
like the river end up at the ocean
The eys are floodgates to the soul

    It's a nice poem, the title is eye catching.
    Eyes can be read like a book by a poet, as you have done.
    The opening line is a clear statement from deep observation, I liked it. (Report) Reply

    I like the way you tell this. It has direction in what you say. You might want to put a space between arefull-and change 'bat' to but. It will read alot more smoother. Hope you don't mind me reading your work and suggesting fixes? Sorry, it's bad habit. :) Deborah Cromer (Report) Reply

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.
