Fiery Eyes


Some sort of smoke
Caught my attention...
It came from your fiery eyes
Smoke filled my lungs,
Suffocating my consciousness.

Seeing through those rising flames
To your icy center
Was a discovery I could not
Connect to the truth.

Volcanic waves swept me away,
Catching your fiery eyes again.
You melted me,
Branded my heart to your chest.

I do not play with such
Fiery eyes, ever since
The smoke caught my attention.

    Very nice and well written. Also with hints of strong romance. I am sorry for your loss though I know not how it came about. Would be interested though. Although you may not get the same love twice in one life, there is always a chance that you may know a better sort. I hope that you may one day find this (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
