Searching Eyes - Poem by rinki nandy

They mirror you to the world, they are glossy,
like two tiny saucers with emotions spilled on them,
i see a search in them, a restlessness.....are happy but not satisfied,
always searching......searching for something you know not.
Looking deep and soulful...beautiful....displaying an emotion of helplessness....loneliness in the crowd,
disclosing all that's inside you,
a sadness from denial, a subdued pain,
a zeal to be the best without a fear of rejection,
containing a certain knowingness in them about you.

You know you so much that it scares you,
you want to disappear but there isn't a place...so you hide behind yourself,
can't see those searching eyes as they hide behind the black paint,
can't see that angel face as it hides behind the mask.

I know they are still searching....shying from the world,
wanting more from life....wanting more from thyself.
Times have changed,
you have disappeared finally....you no longer hide....you have got a place now,
you are unreachable now.
Don't see them now,
to see them again someday is my vow,
they still be searching........those “searching eyes”!




plz note: in this poem i am not talking about my eyes, i have tried to demonstrate a person's eyes and that person is dead. so, i wrote this to show him how his eyes affected me and what i saw when i saw them, what i felt when i saw them and how i wish to see them again when i die someday. its about a thought, a feeling i got from those eyes which i think, will still be searching. that person is really dear to me. love him.

    i dont know; your poem has confused me.....what are your eyes searching for, rinki? ? ? Of course, it is a very deftly scripted poem. But, dear, the metaphor is not clear...to me at least..... (Report) Reply
