Your Blue Eyes, Your Gentle Blue Eyes

Updated on October 8, 2014

Have I confessed from painful tongue, just how far above rare beauty you are?

Your eyes. Your soft, wandering, wondering eyes. I cannot live in such perfection.

Your whispers have torn my soul to crimson shreds, and on your bed I bow my weary head.

Why does your butterfly steps silently speak a forbidden grace to me?

And God, dear Master Artist, God, with easel in hand, paint your blond hair and tender hand?

Finding, losing, and questioning the summer sun; crying silently in a hidden room of blue.

Visons of your blue eyes and dancing blond hair are pure sweat on my short breath as I long

For one slow moment to touch, to hold, and see you for the spirit caught in a truthful rue.

You are not and yet you are

Scenting the sunshine and filthy steps of mine.

A time, a turn of a painful mind

Your eyes, those cloudy blue eyes

How easy I lose my name in your heart.

Then the eraser, an elderly embracer with cane so stiff

Walking, clawing for one final breath to know one joy

Your eyes, those haunting blue eyes

And mocking blond hair that belonged to a child so fair

I glance away from my dream, and you sigh, or so it seems

Woven promises and words that meet the mirror so true.

Your eyes. Those sundown-envied dark, blue eyes

And blond hair that rivals the air.

My words are dead

My books are all read

My heart runs so blue

Ahh, your eyes, those cheribum eyes

And lips perfectly-fair

That match your hair

Your cloudy blond hair.

      The Examiner-1,

      I appreciate your very nice comments you left about this hub.

      I do like poetry, but mostly abstract/prose (e.g. "An Old Dreamer's Dream") that I felt so torn when it was written.

      Thank youi for the vote and pin. God bless you, but in closing, years ago I DID meet and get to know a girl exactly like this--her eyes were soft that I mumbled due to my confidence being shattered by her looks.

      And she was sincere. Not a user.

      Why I let her slip away sometimes really bothers me.

      That was something unexpected Kenneth. I have not looked through all of your Hubs yet but I did not know that you wrote poetry.

      Anyway, it was different. It was appealing, both the words and the photos. Although in some she looked blond, and others the hair looked white.

      I voted up, shared and pinned it.

      Hey, vkwok,

      It is now 9:40 p.m./cdst, Oct 12

      Thank you kindly and sincerely for your nice comment.

      I do appreciate you, my friend. What is Hawaii like? I may never get to see this beautiful state because I am diabled and cannot travel.

      But I can dream.

      Have a safe night.

      Good evening, Ann,

      Thanks for your analogy about poetry and this IS aching and pain encased in words. I love what you said someone told your husband, his eyes could "lure ducks from a pond," how I wish I had been given THIS power when I could have used it.

      Please keep in touch and come back to see me.

      Hello, BraveWarrior,

      Honestly, I LOVE women with blue eyes, not necessarily blonds altogether. Honestly, your hair sounds very pretty. Thanks for stopping by to spend a few moments in my world.

      God bless you richly, sprititually and in each area of your life.

      Hi, Eric,

      Brown eyes are pretty too. Thanks for your hurried-comment. I did enjoy your thoughts.

      Now take your wife to a MLB play-off game.

      Hi, MizbeJabbers,

      I never thought of what you commmented--all blue eye'd people coming from one place eons ago. Very deep and very interesting.

      Thanks so very much for your warm input.

      Have a terrific week ahead and keep up the fine writing.

      Dear sheilamyers,

      How sweet. Thanks for the sincere compliment. I will do my best, but give me time to do some serious "digging," in my hide-away attic of undiscovered documents I keep there just for this purpose.

      Please accept my thanks for your taking time to read this, but leave such a warm string of words for me.

      Kenneth :)

      God bless you for this very-touching comment.

      You are right. Truth, lies, deception, reality and fantasy are all there. Behind our eyes.

      Blessings to you also.

      Your comment truly made me speechless.

      what a beautiful and vivid imagination. Your poem here expresses the meaning behind the eyes so well.

      Eyes hold the key to our emotions, our truths and our inner self.

      Beautiful! You have such a way with words. I hope you share some more poems for us.

      Interesting and beautifully expressed. All of us in the blue-eyed range are said by geneticists to have descended from the same woman several thousand years ago. I guess that makes us all distant kin.

      Beautiful, aching poetry. Eyes hold every expression and a depth of the soul. They can be so bewitching. My partner has blue eyes that look into the depths of my soul; apparently someone once told him that 'they'd lure ducks off water'!

      I take it you favor blue-eyed blonds. I have blue eyes, but my hair is a mix of brown and gray.

      Wonderfully done and refreshing. My wife's are brown though so I could not linger here too long.
