Eyes: Vol. 2

Updated on April 12, 2013
I can have as many eyes as i can see.

Screaming yourself alive

Pellets of sweat

Batter your face

Tone def

Screaming away the silence

That leaves you alone

To walk with your memories

Every time you stop

You fall to your knees

Catching your breath

As you brace your self against the wall

The best thing

To happen to you today

Was creating a beautiful mess

That you can't

Run away from

Every righteous plan

Has failed you

You bare the scars

To remind yourself

That you wont allow

Your pain to heal

In time you will realize

All that you wanted

Was a moment to feel

In the darkest corners

Of your perception

Their isn't a moment to steal

In the darkness

My mind escapes me

Expanding to boundless horizons

No reality to entertain me

No mortality will distract me

With only demons

To protect me

My third eye

Draws a line of sight

Something to guide

An endless night

I take it all away

To construct a world

Without vanity

Where our eyes

Will correct our insecurities

With the beauty of a harlot

And the sweet taste of vomit

Will i arrive at a destination?

Or remain boundless

In the mysterious void

Of my mind


Chip away

Your old skin
Your old sins

Have a taste
Of your tongue
And its bitter words

Set a date
Evolving backwards
Into a primate

Looking for leadership
Seeking 
Something to dictate

Evaluate
Before you debate
Think of the penalties
That you cannot erase

Stop staring
Concentrate 

Blink your eyes
Remove the sun 
From the sky

Beat your heart
With your fist
You wanted to kill
You nearly missed

Tocks ticking
Liquids dripping
Raining lies
Draining luck
Some days evaporate
Still overwhelmed 
With that vacant stare
Shrugging your shoulders
Running a muck

I've always had a fascination with using my skin as a canvass.

      Thanks! I've always had some kind of fascination with eyes. Whether it be physically, emotionally or metaphorically. One day in my my spare time i decided to paint eyes all over my body (as in the photos above). Ive actually done things like this many times. I don't have any explanation for it. All i know that it fills my mind and then fills the page! I sure had a blast doing it!

      "Screaming away the silence

      That leaves you alone

      To walk with your memories"

      Those are incredible lines and set the perfect tone for the rest of the poem

      SkySlave, I think you got a gift for writing poems. You got a way of putting words together in a poem. Well done.

      Thank you Petra Vlah, i really liked the way i opened up that poem as well. Allot of times i like the poems that unfold in the beginning and leave questions to be asked at the ending.

      Liesl, thank you again for the encouraging words! I'm glad you have enjoyed some of my poetry.
