The Stars in your Eyes

4-23-2012        The Stars in Your Eyes
        I see that I've changed every time I see you,
        I wonder why my feelings remain the same again,
        It was just infatuation, not you, in which I fell in love with,
        On that September day ,some thirty years ago-,
        I still have your first note in my wallet,your last goodbye,
        From your teary eyes which glistened like stars in the sky,
        Portholes to the storm washing out the road ,in my heart I hold,
        I have gone from your list of carry- a- longs,my tears that have fallen,
        Flowed as a river to the sea in which I rise,only to turn away,
        The love I gave is more than you have taken,I was mistaken,    
         It was me ,who made you up,to more than just something,
        Other than the beauty you had,and now you have nothing.

    Ricky, this poem came out sad at the end.. everyone falls into the deepest infatuation.. trying to build on is hard... and once it is gone.. the passion and lust is gone as well... starry eyes, how can'one avoid being hypnotize... enjoyed your poem, this after noon..always..pd
