Behind Those Beautiful Eyes

Behind those beautiful eyes,
So much anger,so much mistrust,
Always expecting the worst,
Always conversing about the bad
things life has to offer,

Behind those beautiful eyes,
So much hurt,so much pain,
Bottled up bad experiences overflowing,
Crying to be unleashed,to be released,

Behind those beautiful eyes,
High expectation,countless plans,
Many things to still achieve,
So many things you still haven't done,

Behind those beautiful eyes,
Is a body,searching for comfort,
A mind,searching for peace,
And a heart searching for true love,

All behind those beautiful eyes.....

    This poem is one of the most beauiful poems I have ever read, a woman hides all her secrets, fears, pain, sorrow, and love in her eyes. It is very rare to have a man notice what really is behind them. Great write, and beautiful flow. I am lookingfwd to reading more. Katei

    Very good poem and visual. As I read the poem I visualize eyes as an iceberg beautiful on the surface but a great unknown hidden within

    It seems you've looked into my eyes as well and seen the pain inside my soul. I relate well, as I'm sure the subject of this poem does. Perhaps it is about you?
