Eye



You cannot look me in the eye
You cannot look me in the eye
You cannot look me in the eye
You cannot look me in the eye

With every breathe
You say goodbye
You say hello
With every breathe

With every day
Comes a new memory
Comes a possible destiny
With every day

Catch the melody
When you can
Let it ring, let it swing
When you can

I cannot look you in the eye
I cannot look you in the eye
I cannot look you in the eye
I cannot look you in the eye

When you try
When you cry
When you lie
When you die

I see it in the eye

Let me look at you
Let me look at you
Let me look at you
Let me look at you

With the eyes from another

A lie can hide in the depths of the eye... interesting piece.

I was in love with someone who left me feeling exactly like this. So painful. So horrible. How I love solitude and quiet.

@Strawberry Girl - Thanks!!!

Opaque said...

@Sandy - Hmm. It must have been painful!

Interesting Ajey! It's often hard to look into another's eyes when we keep reflecting back on our own perceptions. Thought provoking.

Walker said...

The truth sometimes comes from the reflections of another's eyes .

Great post

Hi AJ...I really like the flow and rhyme in this piece. They say the eye is the window to the soul. Another strong piece of writing here.

Don't you find that some people have trouble looking other people in the eye, really look at them? The way you describe the possibilities that each day presents, and what good things could happen if we really looked at one another. Even people we don't know, but especially the ones we do know.
