Behind Her Eyes

by James Zealy

Can you see her uncertain smile
Applied with shy pain strokes
Round face epochal tiled
Olympus intellect evoked
Languished in brilliant eye quivers

Guilty for careless feelings I disregard
Riddles of life juxtaposed
After answers appear composed
Heralded when honesty aligns my scars
Ambivalent cancer of my heart
Maligns ID image Cathart

I like how confused this feels. Chaotic might be a better word, but I think it's really well done and extremely effective. Great read.

You are such a caring man. I love how you relate what you take note of in another's life, but I wonder...if you've told her?
