Heed not Steve

Tag: eyes

Decided

Shall we return

to sleep?

Shall we ignore

those ticks

those clicks

the dark

and the bumps

the shadows

oh

the silent

busy

business

of the night?

A vote:

The eyes have it…

How I Wonder

almost autumn –
nothing really twinkles but
stars . . . and eyes

If Not Our Eyes

this heat –
our heads remain
online

Should’ve Seen That Coming

in his mask
with a breath mint
his glasses fog
his eyes burn

Late

yeah yeah moon –
his eyes somehow
dry with tears

One Eye Closed

this breeze disappears
in the dark

sparkling sparkles

Days the Same

the sun gone down –

his eyes on

the clock

To The Light

one flower
and her eyes
are the sun

A Love Ballad by J.J. Gerald Chester – 1st Draft

But lo,

your hair tangled

in sunlight

so

sparks of –

your smile

your smile is

a simile

no it’s

your smile is like

a metaphor

for

your eyes

which

slow

dry blink

they

glaze over

ever

inward

as

I

speak
