Poem inspired by the attached painting..


 You look at me with knowing eyes,

That's because you see through my disguise,

The mask I've worn for so many years,

Hiding away all my hurt, pain & tears,

The loves in my past have token their toll,

In my heart there’s a large empty hole,

To be filled with true love makes it ache,

But I’m scared of making another mistake,

I know if it’s filled with love by a true lover,

Then if I lost them I’d surely never recover,

Their place in my heart would then be shattered,

Heart broken & lost, to the four winds scattered,

I wouldn’t have the strength to piece it together,

To find a love like yours would take forever,

My mind is in turmoil. my heart is a mess,

My emotions are wrought & under stress,

I can’t stand anymore, cheating or lying,

I feel like crying, for true love I’m dying,

You appear as angel from heaven sent to me

To take away my hurt & pain, to set me free

Wrapping around me your wings of love

Sent to help me heal, from up above

The love I have for you I can't describe,

As I come out from the mask that I hide,

The fear I have now is of losing you,

After all that I've been through,

To commit to you I'm not sure that I can,

If I lost you I'd be a down & broken man,

Makes me want to cry ---tears in my eyes......I've been through it, and it's no fun, but what do we do but go on. Loved this write very much can relate to it very much so.

A beautiful rhyming poem revealing a man's true feelings. Those knowing eyes have powers to see well beyond the paint their painted with.

Excellant write that could easily be converted to song lyrics. I think we all fear letting go completely to love for there is always a chance we can get hurt and the more we love the more intense the pain is when and if it does happen...but...what is life without love?

THE EYES ARE THE WINDOWS TO ONE'S SOUL. TO LOOK INTO 'KNOWING EYES' MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD. I WROTE A POEM A WHILE AGO ENTITLED 'THROUGH AND THROUGH'. WHEN YOU GET A CHANCE HAVE A LOOK...I THINK YOU'LL ENJOY ITS SOMEWHAT DIFFERENT POINT OF VIEW. THANKS FOR SHARING. LOVE, BLESSINGS AND FAITH...
