I think it's sort of cheating, but I won't be foolish enough to resign myself from its use entirely. It speaks wonders to the value of our eyes, though, that we let this happen at all. We understand what someone means when they write an emotion into the eyes. We've seen it before, we know that emotions live there. Apparently, Past Justin knew it too.
(Organized for your convenience)
look into my wandering eyes
their movement unveils/uncovers my disguise
smell the stink from my eyes
and get a case of shying sighs
listen to my worried eyes
their speach tells you of hitting highs
Hear my stone cold hardened eyes
and block out all others stupid lies
taste with care my liquid eyes
and get a case of deadly dies (and start to live lively lives
Think the thoughts from my eyes
And grow your soul great in size
A little bit arrogant, thinking that paying attention to my soul will enhance yours. Sorry about that. I almost didn't post this poem, but I thought the use of the senses was a little bit clever, mostly because when you think of eyes you usually think of seeing.
life lies less lingering amongst happy folk
lives left lost and unloved yearn for illumination
lingering lives often lie loosing life
lilly pads love lustful Iluminance
Thinking thoughts thought once befor
eat upon a closing door
|Heated hands heal the lost|
Helping hearts hark the harold
Ridiculous spacing. I'm also not sure where that last bit came from. For some reason though, I'm certain it belongs. In regards to potential, I like the first, second, and fourth lines of the 'L' poem.
The 'H' poem is kinda neat, but I don't have anything to say about it, really. I wouldn't say that it's good. I guess the only reason I chose to put it up here was because of the way the second line sounds when you say it out loud.
I love reading things out loud. I love hearing things read out loud. I'm actually pretty partial to good voices in general. A good voice will get you far in my book.
I would like to cultivate a better voice, if that's a thing within my reach. What I mean in this context is speaking voice, not singing voice (though I imagine they might be similar). Maybe Google will yield relevant information.
