Inside Blind Eyes

I have taken judicious steps
revised and revisited
       retraced and 

beneath a hollowed out  moon
(giving birth to psychic sounds)
      her face holds pale eyes 
painted a haunted yellow
wrenching…the weep 
I perceive there

a darting glance about me
    (scattered in the wild)
 confirms the fear 
 I fail at concealing 

etched in static lines
    with no denial 
                   just and only I

the song birds sing …
it sounds so desolate
         and forlorn

my solitude a draped shawl
contrived of heavy wool
on feminine shoulders

this heart….a benevolent heart
(still a bit cracked 
            and yes…a little raw)
amiss in the reticence

solitary is defined 
not in being only one
but the plethora that never see
blinded by their lack 
of true consciousness

so in cautious steps
(shrewd and vigilant)
I tread with bare woman’s feet
among those that never see

while watching the willows
bending in the breeze….

    ....Yet be all of these things as they may!!? Again, I love the fact through this wonderfully written, as usual piece~that amid Your declarations, "Your Precious Eyes," seem to be a bit wider, and ready to tread these sometimes enigmatic mazes within life...."My Love Always To 'You and Your Angel Brianna,' Forever, John!!!!":):):)~"Excellent Write!!!!"~On we go....

    Yes, You do have a very benevolent heart!!!!:):):)~"Good Afternoon Gifted & Beautiful Christie Moses & Your Little Tinkerbell Brianna!!!!":):):)~I hope that You both are doing wonderfully dear lady!!? And this here is a very profound write: filled with strenght amid revelations I believe!!? And yes, many people sadly are superficial~but then again, we have lived within an environment that has helped within its great part, to create such to some degree!!!?:):)....cont....

    I hope I had nothing to do with the inspiration for this poem. I am getting a feeling that you feel not seen for who you truly are. A deeply haunting and beautiful introspective write. Love, Shar

    Christie this poem was very beautiful - And I think the comment left by Carrie is perhaps the best comment I have ever read - it captures just how wonderful a poem can be because of different interpretations - You know I want to apologize for the comment I made about stepping on my tongue - It was meant as a compliment But both you and my Wife deserve more of me and i'm sorry - YF4L - God Bless, MJ

    Each of us walks alone through this life, Christie, even when we are surrounded by loved ones. Only God can truly be with us every moment. The solitude of our journey is well described. Love the way you "define" solitude in the 8th verse. Bless you and Happy Easter! Love, Carolyn
