Green eyes

Mike Saltzman – Self-portrait

what caught my attention?
it had to be your eyes…

light green eyes
closin’ as you smile.

and you do it so often!
no one realizes…

you’re trying to hide the pain
that burns inside your skin.

but i’m the only one
able to see you like this.

      Oh, thank you, my love! 🙂
      I’m glad you liked it!

    Well done… often we don’t see the pain another carries. Sometimes we lose ourselves in our own. Seeing where others do not is empathy, and empathy matters. LIke.

    • Nanda said:

      I agree! Empathy really matters, Nelle! 😉

  3. Beautiful poem Nanda. I actually felt like it was written for me 🙂

    • Nanda said:

      Do you have green eyes? 🙂
      That’s funny, cause I wrote this thinking about a guy’s eyes.. And his name starts with an S, too! 😉

  4. Haha, yes I have. Well hazel color actually. It’s actually everything said in this that felt like someone I know could have said it to me. Your amazing writing always has some kind of impact on me like this 🙂
    Well, he’s a fortunate guy for you to be writing about him!

    • Nanda said:

      That’s awesome! So, it’s yours! 🙂

  5. If the eyes are the windows of the soul, does that mean we can tell what color a person’s soul is by the color of their eyes?

    • Nanda said:

      I think sometimes we can. 🙂

      • 🙂 My soul is brown.

      • Nanda said:

        Oh, it’s not. You’re an exception – and I knew it the moment I read you! 😉

      • Haha, yeah I know what color my soul is. I was just playin. I’m all kinds of grey and purple. 🙂 And you’re whatever color candy is, cuz you’re sweet!

  6. This is one of my favorites, Nanda! I love it, esp. these lines…light green eyes
    closin’ as you smile. It’s just to touching and intimate without reading about the intimacy~ xx
