If only you could read my eyes.
Then you'd know the truth.

When talking to people who I don't want to share
My innermost feelings, heartfelt thoughts, and real personality with,
I glare at them with neutral eyes, so they can never figure me out,
And show them a sly and simple smile.

But when talking to people who I trust, people who I love,
People who I can be my complete self around,
My eyes are wide open and ready to be read,
If, of course, this person dares.

I only allow this opportunity,
To a restricted few.
One, two? At the most, three people.
I always give my eyes to You.

And you have not dared.

You haven't dared.
Otherwise you would know
That I have dared to look into your eyes;
So rudely, I penetrate your soul
To see if I mean anything to you,
And see if what my heart says is true.

It is.
And you fail to notice.

I know you fail.

I know you failed,
Otherwise you would not have said those
Casual words,
That are now constantly echoing in my mind.
Now I'm talking to myself, wishing to tell you
How you have absolutely no idea what you're saying.

You failed.

You failed to notice.

That I want to talk to you.
That I want to hold and caress you.
That I want to kiss you ever-so softly on your adorable pink lips.
That I want to ruffle my fingers through your chocolate hair.
That I want to cup your fascinating face.
That I want to stroke your hand with my protective thumb as we cuddle.
That I want to whisk you off your feet and carry you forever.
That I want to look into your eyes and see you…
Boring into mine… for the very first time.

I show all these thoughts as bright as I can
With my lustful, wistful eyes
And you can't read them, or you can't understand them.

Or…
You're waiting for me to tell you in words.

Well believe me darling when I say I'm trying.



You won't give me the chance.

Spent tonight at a party where this girl kept avoiding me...
At least it seemed that way.
Maybe there were just too many people there. :shrug:
At any rate, these were the thoughts torturing my mind the entire time.
Oh well, we still had fun. :)
And it's a pretty good thing that this girl doesn't follow my dA, or even go on dA unless I ask her to. x) She'd instantly figure out who this was directed toward.
(Damn teenage hormones!)

It may not be original but, this isn't exactly an "original" poem. I know that anyone could've written this. But I didn't feel like giving it volume last night while I was writing it. I just wanted to pour my thoughts out onto my notepad.

Hope you enjoyed it.

I actually understand this piece quite well, and how you wish that look could communicate with the right one...

I enjoyed this, almost seemed a little slow in the beginning, but then it jumped into action.

nice!

Lol I think it's more then original. Well the emotions aren't cause I guess everyone, or mostly everyone, sometime in their life felt like that. But you described it really well :) I like ish
