In Her Eyes.

In Her Eyes.

I caught a glimpse
the flash of a glint
gleaming thru a squint
I looked in her eye.

Looking into time
past or future, that’s for sure.
In a blink, I saw
in her eye, what I saw:

The strength of a woman,
the struggles of a woman.

The sweetness of the woman

in the eyes of this woman.

Suppressed disappointments and feelings of failures,
The softness of the woman,
intuition of a woman.
Perceived tears beneath the surface
This one would cry easy,
breakdown into heaves                                                                                                          and sobs. O for her weakness.

The smile was there, ‘twas in there somewhere
playing with the eyes, wrinkling at the corner
rippling the blinds on the windows of her soul.
All this, I saw; in a flash I saw.
all this, I saw in her eyes as I walked by.

  1. @neo-lite, your stuff is always worth the read and this is no difference…why did you use lower +upper case initial letters?…and then the uneven stanzas?…you may have a reason though…”

    past or future, that’s for sure.[how do you mean?]

    well done

  2. I’m trying to imagine the intensity in those eyes that inspired this piece; who knows what I’ll find when I look into them- nothing perhaps; or maybe the whole world.

  3. Worth reading, Thru the eyes of the one who saw thru the eyes of the woman…lol

  4. Lovely poem Neo-lite…there are stories etched on the faces of the perfect strangers we see everyday…enjoyed reading this…more grease!

  5. thanx for reading NS et al.
    @xikay, maybe it was tautology but i’ll say i was reiterating the line before that “looking into time…”. does this expalin it?
    @scopeman, true, u might not see anything then again u might see the opposite or perhaps more.
    @Ayokunle, u know dat kind thing.nice one.
    @estrella, where’ve u been? do u think i could tell if i looked in through your eyes?

  6. @neo-lite, good…but if that was the case, don’t you think it should be:
    past or[AND] future, that’s for sure[SURE means you are certain so you shouldn’t sound uncertain].

  7. hmm. (scratching chin)lets take a wholistic look at this
    “Looking into time
    past or future, that’s for sure.”
    for sure is for the fact that her mind is not in the present but either in the past or the future, does this justify it? i’m not tryin to force it to have meaning, just trying to explain the feelin i got when i looked into those eyes.

  9. This is quite intense and nice.

  10. Can relate to this. Really loved it. It’s such a lovely piece. The last two line, perfecto and belle. Really sealed a very good poem for you. Hope to read more like this.

  11. I’m feeling u… Nice job man.
    No one says u r forcing it… Ur explanation makes sense sha, but d point is, how many ppl wld u have d chance to explain to? Can it b told in another way while the meaning is retained?

  12. I’d rather have a title without a full stop sha. U sure say u see all these things wey u write so, as u just waka pass once? U na bad guy o!

  13. @4ran6, fact is the full stop is not needed in titles and headlines.

  14. @Xikay, I know but… Fact is it shld b told in a way he wldn’t stop writing. We’re all here to learn…

  15. have you read my latest post? NS Ramblings5, you will know that i agree with you big time

  16. I have! Have u forgotten in a hurry that I did more than twice? I feel ur passion to get d best out of ppl, but if u dnt go easy, u’d do damage instead of gud.

  17. That’s d spirit… Thanks!

  18. Lovely poem……leaves me with the feeling that I have read this before….keep writing.
