Eyes. - Poem by Jordan Phillips
Your eyes are like the earthly ground,
So caring for humans like we.
The Earth is our protector,
Our love flows from the fire.
Our tears from the water.
Our laughter from the wind.
Our shell after death returns to part of you once again.
We all are important to someone,
You are the one for me,
Just by a look of the purity in the eyes,
I feel like I fall from stories and never land.
When life is hard we must think of glorious things to distract us,
Flowers in the meadow,
A swift curent ruffling the leaves that cling to the branch,
A sunset appearing from afar,
Calming waters to relax our complex mind.
You do this all by your eyes.
I think of everything.
So can you please understand i'm happy here with you,
I wish you were just happy with me too.
Your face is like the sun,
Is this a trap created by the devil?
The greatest thought just like being bored?
Don't we sin when we fall into his trap of lust?
I must fight the urge to touch this temptation.
Warmth springs up inside of me,
It flows through my body at the sight.
Emotions that I try and hide sneak past my wall,
How do I controll myself around him?
The color of his skin brings me back to seeing the beach at dusk,
Surounded by sounds of nature,
flooding my ears.
I cannot describe the feelings,
It's not of this world.
It feel like the rays of the sun touch me all over,
and tickle my skin.
It happens when I look at you.
The feelings I let bundle upinside of me,
It is horrible to let anger,
People tear me into peices and take every single hit to the heart.
But I am strong and I don't accept weakness of the human heart.
I must grow and ignore the 'cause and effect.'
Sometimes I can't help myself but to cry,
Graditude to the tears that was away pains,
And the past.
Like a dam breaking and all the water rushing to finally be free.
And not a slave to the man made wall.
I see my memorizing pictures that I paint with these sorrows,
I learned that i'm not alone in this world.
I'm no longer a one man army.
I have you in my life now,
Opening my eyes and taking the first breath of something new,
tastes so sweet on my lips and tongue.
So can you free me from my past?
Help me finally find peace?
Just you, God, and I in true happiness.
Warmth flows through my half dead body and touches me deep to heal the anger.
Soothing sounds of water fill my ears and the drown the tears and pain.
The wind blows away any regrets.
Earth is there forever within me.
God and you save my soul from losing it's sanity.
Now we are free.
Together in my eyes.
