Eyes That See Through You

I looked in on you
you peered back at me
there lies the difference.

I see with eyes of depth,
into the soul I try to gaze
for value I am seeking.

Your sight is one sided
shallow is your perception
you need not even speak
your eyes say enough.

I try to sustain my footing
in this shared space but
find the air sickening and
stagnant.  

What passes your tongue
does not have any pleasing
attributes, no wonder you
stand alone and shameless.

The prevalent nature I
possess affords clearer insight,
I will always keep seeking
the truths that bind me.

Win you do not for no
power do you possess, lack
of foresight is what you have
maintained not wisdom.

Time I bid to be on my side
for strength I gain in this
one sided affair called unity.

Wisdom fought for is
untouchable, and puffed
up is your pride which in the  
end you will lose, but
freedom I possess.

By,  Cerenity

this is excellent cerenity...
your thoughts and emotions are so very
very well written out and expressed.
perfect ending statement.
another great one.
take care, jm


 Well the sun sets gently on your shoulders
And it makes me want to touch you there.
And the light in your eyes makes me feel
Like there's something much better out there
Something kind...
And I know someday I might be looking around
Trying to find some purpose
Well purpose it can't be that hard to find
As long as I've got the wind...
The wind and your love to carry me.

Cerenity~
Freedom can often be found in the
soul of one who has released the
fetter of their spirit.

Let your mind soar !
Love ya'

Cerenity....
  
The brutal reality of your words leaves me speechless. I completely understand (through, of course, experience) every word that is in this poem. You did an excellent job (once again). You tend to express feelings I cannot in my poetry, Are you in my head? Are you psychic? or are you like me in many ways so that you can understand how I feel and have felt? GREAT WORK! I'm going to add yet another one of your poems to my favories archive!
