Look at those red eyes,
Portrayal of sophistication and feeling so high,
Are they result of past cries or deep sighs,
Or left alone in the vast world without anyone to rely,
Look deeper and deeper into those red eyes,
All those long years they have become so dry,
Once full of emotion it had tears to cry,
Fear to express and for someone to die….
look at those red eyes…
what’s its truth within and what it lies
Look at those red eyes..
They have lost the power to cry
what they look at what they hide
Remains a mystery within the color so bright…
They are dead within the aura of red
They seek no one they don’t move ahead
Fixed on the past, oh the past is dead
With nothing to expect and nothing to get
lingers in this word with the color so red
Look at those red eyes…
Nothing it said
but still so bright but also dead……
Great poem, Vinayak! Lyrical and emotional. I love the refrain that pulses through the flow and set the stage for the lines that follow. The portrayed duality is done very well. Beautiful!
thanks Brad, this was my very first poetry , i re-posted it for self motivation and your comments definitely are inspiring.
Wow! That is where you started? My early poems are rudimentary and forced. I would be embarrassed to revisit them now.
I am sure Brad it is not, you are just being too kind. the story behind this is i go to washroom of my work place, and that was my first Job too, a fresher, my eyes red sitting in front of computer, and i see myself in mirror. And then something happened, I just got this concept to write in my mind, and i go i write and keep it with me for a year, until i wrote another one, but after that i guess i did not stop….hence it strangely motivating to me. I am flattered my your words though.
The pain of years have dried the eyes which are now red. Wonderful.
Thanks a lot for reading 😊

I was feeling off-kilter and looking for something I resonate a kind feeling to feel the understand as someone does. Thank you, as always this has done just what I needed to help me off one knee wondering the reason. Thank you for helping me stand.
