Eyes Never Lie

Your eyes say it all.
Your eyes say it all. | Source

In reading this, I see it as a complement to my poem about seeing your face. called "Reflection". I'm always bettering myself and recognizing when I'm my own obstruction. Or when those you encounter don't fit into your plan. Enough said, I now bring you.....



Eyes Never Lie



You look to the right –

I know you’re thinking.


You look to the left –

I know you’re lying.


You look beyond me

And I know you

Don’t see me.


You may not see

The disconnect

Or the Truth,


But


Eyes Never Lie.


I see you


And you see me –


If you’re looking…..

After a busy day in the garden it's nice to come back to a beautiful poem by my favorite Florida Hubber. Well done my dear and you are oh so right, the eyes do indeed see all, interpret all and say all.

I so appreciate your comment, Bill. I'm going thru a really hard time right now and , to be honest, you are my solace. You keep me steady. I know that's a burden, but thank you for taking me on, my friend!

Look'em in the eye and they can't lie. But they might steal your wallet. Just kidding. Very nice poem. I enjoyed it and voted up.

Thank you so much, Alocsin! I've always been told I have an expressive face, therefore I always strive to speak what's in my heart! Eyes don't lie!

A beautiful and crisp poem!

It unveils a simple truth in beautiful fashion; eyes can never lie... they will always be honest and innocent.

You bring out power in your simple words and the imagery becomes strong by your descriptive craft!

Beautiful poetry! "The disconnect of truth" purely amazing

You have no idea what your words mean to me, Rahul! I consider you an elite poet. Being the first comment I've read this beautiful Saturday morning, you've started my day with a smile and joy in my heart! Thank you my friend!

There was so much said in a few lines here.

The truth always shines out from lying eyes.

You expressed this very well here with a minimum of words. It made me think of a whole storyline going on. Nicely done.

Anna, it's funny you should say that. I've written myself a note to start a new hub about eyes and how they speak. When I did so, I remembered this poem I wrote so many years ago. It must be Kismet. You and I have both been inspired by the thoughts of a young girl.

Sometimes wisdom is discovered in youth - not old age. Perhaps it's that wisdom of youth that leads us through life and brings comfort as we age. Comfort and recognition. It must come from within.

hahaha I loved it:)I really liked bauscee despite its length and simplicity, I get a great visual, probably bauscee I have a ton of crap in my car too (like shoes I actually found my cowboy boots under my front seat the other day). One of the things I think makes poems successful is its ability to make readers relate, and this poem definitely has that quality.

I'm glad you can relate, Marie. Although I don't get the connection between crap in your car and this poem. It talks about lying, not clutter.
