Into His Eyes
By: JP Leddy
Looking into his eyes…
I try to find in his heart….
His place where he cherishes me…
where his dreams of me begin…
where the hopes of us together flourish…
where my smiles are saved for a lifetime…
where my secrets are locked forever…
where our lovemaking culminates…
where I stay forever young…
Instead in those eyes I find…
and my heart and my dreams …
are washed down into a river…
of hurt and betrayal…

A really good poem 🙂
beautiful exposed emotions ….
really liked it a lot 🙂
Appreciate the time you took to read and your comments.
Love the repetition of ‘where’ and the twist at the end, even if it makes it so sad.
Sadness sometimes follows love…
lovely and commendable..
Delightful! And a most relateable feeling for us all–what begins in starry-eyed illusion, shatters into something altogether cold, with reality, the breaking of delusion. The heart does hope – it is sad that this occasionally must be the end. Thanks for sharing with the potluck!
Seeing love you once had given to another stirs the emotions of hurt and betrayal, good write
What a beautiful one JP.. Just kept me flowing from one line to the other.. A sad one which is but obvious how it happens in Love!! 😦
Enjoyed the Dreamy Feel.. 🙂
Warm wishes- xox
Thank you, sweetie.
eyes tell a lot,
eye contact is important in communications.
True, Ji, True
Beautiful love but sad at the same time.
All the more bitter is the aftertaste of a feast on passions fruit when you realize the platter was meant for another. Fantastic write!
Sometimes life just dishes up bitter fruit.
Another sensitive, probing poem about unrequited love. Well-done, tasit.
Thanks for you thoughtful comments on my poem. Victoria
You are welcome, Victoria.
Thanks for your comments…
‘Looking into his eyes…
I try to find in his heart….’
beautiful… I always thought that one can know one’s soul through the eyes but then heart is what if not the soul of a person.. I enjoyed it . Thanks for sharing such beautiful feelings…
ॐ नमः शिवाय
Om Namah Shivaya
Thank you for your beautiful comments.
This is very good.
It’s interesting (and sad) to see how love is almost always followed by some fear/loss/disappointment… I wonder how this happens though!! Maybe it’s something about expectations…. (sigh)
You have expressed these feeling very beautifully here, JP.. Kudos…
And best luck with everything!
Thank you…I really appreciate it.

Pain thou name be love …. enjoyed the read.
love can be pain.
oye, i did not like the turn at the end. :-(… this is a really great poem that builds you up and hits you with a humdinger… thank you for sharing!
take care ~700
Love hits with humdingers sometimes..
Looking into his eyes-
His heart is noble and pure
With him my life is complete
Hopes, fears, dreams and smiles shared in love….
His knight in shining armor.
Love could hide but not transform
The gold heart corrupted with lead that is only for you
There is no other.
Running in circles
I live half a life
The armor rusted, beaten to the ground
I cannot love you the way you derserve
Come back and haunt me.
Don’t listen you deserve better
I am speechless and I have so much to think about. Thank you for sharing your heart with me.
