I Will See It In Your Eyes


You say it won’t

I know it will

It always does

I will see it in your eyes


A different man

I will become

If my scant veil

Lifted from all the lies


What you may think

And what I know

Two different men

Yet bearing the same face


You only see

Best I exude

Halo above

Evil, but a shadowed trace


You cannot know

What evil grows

Another’s death

A well-known, age old friend


From bloodied hands

Of hardened heart

Within them still

No fear to promote one’s end


For taking life

Without a tear

The killing lust

Is tattooed in the mind


If stripped away

The layered lies

That evil man

Becomes easy to still find


And change you will

Your view of who

Is standing now

Truth seen uncompromised


You say it won’t

I know it will

It always does

I will see it in your eyes

    impossible not to see it

  2. No matter how many times my eyes read these words, I want to look you in the eye and deny their truth, while simultaneously recognizing the truth within them. Our judgement will not change our ability to love another, but it nonetheless exists.

    We have discussed this subject matter and you are well aware of my feelings. However, I will remind you that there is absolutely nothing you could tell me that would ever change my view of you! I might find some topics difficult to hear, some might be difficult to process, but I promise they could never change the way I see you now because they made you who you are. One day, I will prove this to you. You will look in my eyes and see they still hold the same softness and adoration they always have, and then you will have to write another poem because this one will be false.

    There is nothing that could make me adore you less or lose respect for you.

    Sending you lots of love! ❤🦒💋🌹

    The old proverb, “Eyes are the windows to the soul,” comes to mind.

  5. Your selections continue to hold up well.

    The eyes say it all! Such powerful words my friend!
