Your Eyes


I wish I could see myself
through your eyes
I ponder the person
there I would see
would I see me
or would I see the lies
of the man
the world tells me I should be

A man
who has no feelings to share
that for another can't care
who wages not for loves sake
with a heart that cant ache

I wish you would look
and with new sight see
the hero for your love
that I want to be

A cavalier's intention
in armor of white
the lonely poetic soul
crying at night.

Open your eyes my love
and take a look
at what I could be
if a chance you took

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
