The Lovely Glance

She glanced at me,
I stared at her,
I looked in her eyes,
She ignored my sight

She looked back again,
My eyes weren't there,
She stared at me,
I didn't look at her

I felt I had missed her lovely stare,
So made my mind to keep staring at her,
I continued to gaze her lovely eyes,
She made an attempt to ignore my gazing eyes.

A contact of the eyes was so hard to come by,
The eyes kept playing the game of spies,
We both understood what we were searching for,
Still we didn't get what we were looking for.

The hide n seek was about to end,
the eyes became stable again,
the impatient eyes were calm now,
they made a vow to have a look now.

Suddenly there was a change in the scene,
a selfish obstacle had come in between,
it blocked a pretty viewing,
and the lovely eyes were no more there to be seen.

A smile is what I just was looking for,
her eyes is what my eyes kept searching for.

It started so well,
it ended so sad,
But one thing she did,
Was she left me mad!

    I recall the days of glances and flirtation. I read this poem from the perspective of shyness, and it hits close to home. I enjoyed it, thank you. (Report) Reply

    Hey, that was such a sweet poem, I myself have been in a similar situation, and the game playing of the glances happen just like that, love the poem.

    Pretty good. Personally though, I didn't like the ending. Other than that though, good work. (Report) Reply

    Hey Man,
    I like this poem. HOwever, just my humble opinions, the first few stanzas seem a bit repetitious in terms of the location of the ideas expressed for those stanzas..If there was some variation in ways of expressing that idea, it would have been better.... after all, i like this poem! it's so true and easily related to my life, maybe everybody's lives.

    It describes most of how we all feel! ! ..
    It says things that we mostly dont see! !
    and most of all it has true innocent emotion in it! !
    I really liked and im glad i read it, looking forward to read some more =) (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
