Show Me Ways

A poem by Peter S. Quinn

This is for you, Always to you
More than I could ever give
To you all and to live
Something true inside of me
Coming here and wanting to be
Always with you always free
There are moments I can't trust
So much in themselves and getting lost

Show me ways with eyes unspoken
Through the longings of my dream
Every footstep is a token
To the way that feelings seem
Fill my darkness inside out
With the rays that erases dark
And let me know what love's about
Every turn and every spark

Bring me to your heart to hold
Fill my ways with love secure
Every feeling there unfold
That comes to you in its blur
Show me ways with your eyes
Open the heart like open skies

These eyes are so piercing. They make me feel like they can see hidden parts of my mind. Disturbing and relaxing at the same time.

Are her eyes really that magical or a bit of photo manipulation? :)

absolutely beatuiful image, great palette and perfect composition, and such a stunning subject as well,as far as critique goes, its amazing, although if i try hard to find fault, i guess maybe lose the eye makeup, the blue at least as the eyes and the cowl fit perfectly together colour wise and i feel that the eye shadow conflicts with the overall colour scheme....also for possible other ideas maybe less air brushed or foundation (whichever it is, or even both :P)....all in all im thinking just plain black eyeliner with the same out of focus background, and wonderful shroud, and those eyes obviously

at any rate im in love with this photo, its sublime, and your very lucky to know someone like this, i truly envy you :)....she is indeed a very special person :) wishes, and keep up the amazing artwork

Missmaybeme Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2012
Her eyes are amazing. They look like fire, or the Hubble close-up pictures of stars, only in a tigers-eye brown.
Also, some people said they might be photo-manipulated, but it looks more like she just has pretty eyes, with light reflecting in them, and her pupils are really small probably because there's very bright light.

Incredible eyes. Blue eyelids makes them stand out even more. Lovely shot.
theartyst Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2011  Professional Traditional Artist
You have OBVIOUSLY PHOTOSHOPPED her eyes extremely (well). Maybe some explaination would put it to rest, unless you want everybody to believe that's what she looks like naturally.

Not answering a single person isn't cool - either.
Filly8 Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes but photoshopping is a type of art and while i kind of agree it should have been mentioned in the description just like he mentioned the camera it was shot from it is not really necissary because it is fairly obvious.

Very beautiful picture with its drastic colors and composition! and congrads on being featured on Yahoo! News :)
