Optical Allusion - Poem by Kelly Kurt

Do I reside behind my eyes
My primary source of experience
Can I believe everything I see
Looking into the eyes of others
Is there something I can tell
Windows or cameras
Crystal balls or mirrors

    Eyes are guilty of a look and heart is guilty of love. Beauty needed love and took my heart leaving beauty in my eyes I needed direly. (Report) Reply

    All of which was subjective. I am not a robot, but I do think critically about my experience. I cannot give emotions or unfounded beliefs the same weight I give empirical evidence. It often is uncomfortable.

    what are the other senses for KK, if not to relieve the eyes (Report) Reply

    There are many more senses than the five to which we attribute our access to reality.
