LOVE POEM #25 – THE GUISE OF THE EYES

I have contemplated for many years

The most intriguing features of my love.

Is it the lips? The hair? The hips? The ears?

Or is it a gift given from above?

By my design, I claim it is the eyes.

The long proclaimed windows to a man’s soul.

But the beauty in them is in the guise

Where we use happiness to mask a hole.

Because there are some voids no one can fill,

And in the end we are faced with regrets

But having that one who will love us still

Allows us to cope with our life’s defects.

And it is through their eyes that you will find

A love so strong that it will make you blind.
