MY EYES ARE LIKE HANDS
3/3/00

My eyes are like hands, firm, yet tender skinned,
Holding you up from sinking softly, down
And absorbing the senses taken in,
As feet remain planted on solid ground
Countless sights, and pleasures the eyes will bring,
Empowered by sight alone to touch thee
Held transfixed by a gaze unrelenting,
Yet tragic, that the hands can also see
The imprint of thy image, volumes speak,
Of touches that I can furtively steal
Across time, distance, a sensory feast,
Through the eyes, my flesh can faithfully feel

My eyes caress like hands across your skin
Let me feel you like that, and take you in

Nice rhyme and imagery i think.  This piece has a true poetic feel.
Good piece.

"My eyes caress like hands across your skin
Let me feel you like that, and take you in"

this poem takes me in...very nice...very!!
I wish to see MORE "new ones"...
stalk you later, jm

 When you see through love's illusions, there lies the danger...
And your perfect lover just looks like a perfect fool
So you go running off in search of a perfect stranger
While the loneliness seems to spring from your life
Like a fountain from a pool.

It's definitely a sign of talent when you can make leering seem graceful and poetic.   Keep 'em comin'. I really enjoyed this.

Eyes can carry us to many a great places and your poem touched on the core essential of desire. Excellent writing I really enjoyed this one.

Everyone, thanks. I really wasn't sure about the last 2 lines, but i think i will keep them in now. Thanks for telling me about them. I love bsquirrel's comment, it is leering only if it is unwelcome. *S*
Happy Mardi Gras everyone.
