Eye Lined

My eyes have borne the pain
carried in my mind.
They harbor the tears
that steal the moments
of sweetness away.

They breed the color blue,
sometimes glazed,
tarnishing my outlook on life.
It doesn't matter, the times spent
in endless pursuit of happiness.
The chase doesn't bring the pleasure
nor the attainment of love.

I lined my eyes
with memories today,
setting upon those
that stopped my breathing
when lips spoke words
that were held captive in touch.

I rest my eyes tonight
in darkness, behind shades
of broken promises,
as I shadow dance
to thoughts of loving you
and let the rhythm of the rain
lull me into tranquility.

M

Powerfully sad, Maureen... I like your unique theme here.  I've never applied eye liner before, so I can't really directly relate to it at all, but I can see the relevance in your various observations on eyes... and in the end, how closing your eyes is the only way to attain peace... very interesting.

I'm starting to really develop a taste for your writing.  Thank you for sharing this with us.

LP, I think that is one of the nicest comments I have received in a long time. I am glad you can read me and get something out of it. Sad or not, it's how I am feeling.

Thanks again for taking the time.

Good morning C,
the sun is shining and my mood has swung *s
