Treasure Island

Poet of the River

(july 27 1994 / California, but move around a lot.)

Burning in my eyes(song)


I walk down the street with my blindfold on,
I can't tell what's going on around me!
Let's take it from the top!
I'm gonna take it off!
But if you looked into my eyes, would I stare back blindly?

If you look into my eyes, what would you see?
Would you see the heart and soul within me?
If you looked into my eyes, what would you see?
Would you see my eyes staring back blindly?

I open my eyes.
But what do I see?
I see a world with nothing to see.
The grass dark grey and the sky deep yellow,
I hear a song, slow and, mellow.
Turn away... Turn away...TURN AWAY! ! ! !

If you look into my eyes, what would you see?
Would you see the heart and soul within me?
If you looked into my eyes, what would you see?
Would you see what you should never see?

A heart, torn apart.
I'm blind.
I cannot find!
Heart, torn apart.
Now do your part, and help me by picking up the pieces! !

Scattered to the ground, falling to the ground,
The fragments of a broken soul.
scattered around my feet.
Falling to the ground, falling to the sound,
Of an ever loving heart beat!

Falling, falling, falling,
Falling to the ground!
Falling, falling, falling,
Without a sound.
Falling, falling,
My heartbeat!

If you look into my eyes, what would you see?
Would you see the heart and soul within me?
If you looked into my eyes, what would you see?
You would see me, as all I can be.

Look into my eyes,
And see me.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
