    • After a couple years gone, I think it's about time I made a return. Time to upload some poetry.

    Your Eyes

    When oft in idle quand'ry,
    My thoughts slip back to you,
    And then I feel so lonely:
    I wish you loved me too.

    I never got to asking,
    Emotion well I bore,
    In silence, ever wanting,
    Still hoping at my core.

    I found my consolation
    Inside my love for you,
    To hurt with proclamation
    Would tear my heart in two.

    So now I look in deeper:
    The Gemini of light,
    Your eyes, my lovely reaper
    That brings my soul to flight.

    Their depth, and their sweet pity,
    Have given me the might,
    To write this silly ditty;
    To be this poet’s light.

    Twin globes of greatest beauty,
    They shine celestial bright,
    Two stars forgot their duty,
    Now glisten day, and night.

    You all my hope containing,
    My darkest day grows bright,
    The sun replaces raining,
    Your eyes become my light.

    If earth could sing your praises,
    I’d join the chorus too,
    As harmony then raises,
    I’d do it all for you.

    And if Life seems too hopeless,
    If nothing else is true,
    This truth let me confess:
    Just know that I love you.

    I agree with bandit1192. You seem to have a very good grasp on words, and all that I have read of your work has astounded me. I love the style in which you write. Keep up the good work, and thanks for sharing with others.

    Beautifully done. You write better than I ever did at 16. You show a maturity that many of us older poets still lack. I am a fan. TS

    If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.

    Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) American poet.
