the blind fear in my eyes

the blind fear in my eyes

i looked at my eyes
for the very first time
all i could see
were the blind fear in my eyes
i roared off in the middle of thought
...where is everyone when i need them most? 
i asked, not 
in grief or anger, in despair may be

on foot, my face and lips all cracked
as i ventured into the jungle, my teeth chattered
in cold but very hot emotions of wondering
how luck could have left me so alone, 

i squat to the feeling of nothingness
like a stone falling from a distant heart
and narrowly escaped with my life at heart
tried to suppress my memories at heart
and my blood runs in cold as i recollect
a sudden cry over my shoulder at once
i looked at my eyes again; at once

and spoke timidly to my person's eyes
how hard it were without surprise
of any emotional upheaval to rise
as the wind blew into every crack of mine
and soaked my person to the skin one time
as i looked straight into my eyes

i could see how the grass
and flowers
sprout and spring in intimacy
but pain 
for all i had were all lost between
and gone again
like the tiny little butterflies 
on my mind
that covered all my thoughts to the end
with misery written all over my face
and looked a sorry sight on my face
i could barely see myself
and still looked blindly at my eyes
at last, and rested

    Really wonderful write!I guess everyone goes through that.We should rely on us instead of others,as its our self confidence which stays with u all the time.

    Thank you so much for the readership. I agree in totality. Self confidence is the yard stick to our own destiny and motivation each day that comes to go by. We ought to actualize such as rational beings. Ntema

    Some times we have to do for ourselves. I think you should look again into those eyes and really give love to the child behind them. Wishing you the best. hugs, Catie :)

    looking beyond what the eyes can see or fear is the greatest milestone of all time within human beings. Thanks much Catie. Much appreciation for the readership. Ntema (Botswana)
