Sad Green Eyes


You look at me with sad green eyes,
I'm overcome with feeling-
Such deep emotion they disguise,
Yet send my senses reeling; They speak to me of loneliness
And feelings unexpressed,
Of hopes and dreams unrealized
And love gone uncaressed; They cry to me of urgency
To experience it all-
But here you are in limbo
With your back against the wall; I wish I had the answers
To the questions they impose-
I'm drowning in those sad green eyes
And the sorrow only grows; If I had one magic wish,
You know what it would be?
To see instead of sad green eyes
Green eyes that smile for me.

    A perfectly crafted poem, where the completely unforced rhyming structure increases the poignancy of the situation. Simply superb. xx jim (Report) Reply

    I notice how your lines flow beautifully into one another. This has clever rhyming that isn't merely there for rhymes sake. There is a clarity of emotion that I much appreaciate. Well done.
