Wandering Eyes Poetry
This is a poem I wrote about "wandering eyes" and how a heart can be hurt by the unfaithful love of another. It's inspired by the fact that emotional connections with another can be even worse than physical affairs. Love can hurt, which is the context of this poem.
You sing to her as you look at me,
Your heart is somewhere else; it’s not where it should be.
I wish you loved me fully, I wish that you cared,
I want all of you for me, I can’t have you shared.
But you can’t be tied down, you’re wild and free,
I’ll never have you belonging just to me.
It’s unfortunate you know, as I love you so much,
I never again want another man’s touch.
I wish you loved me the way I love you,
I wish I didn’t have to deal with the hell you put me through.
But you can’t and you won’t, so I’ll cry into this bed,
I’ll just pretend you look at me the way you look at her instead.
