Eyes ………….

January 9, 2009

tell you when they are up to mischief and make you curious…..
look at you wounded by words and make you regret…
sparkle with happiness on getting a heart’s desire……
twinkle with laughter on seeing you stumble, making you laugh with them..:)
accuse you of callousness and hold you guilty…
probe till your soul is laid bare….
wound with just a look and make you feel inferior….
gaze adoringly and make you feel on top of the world…
ask you the truth and absolve you of guilt…
can be mysterious and make you wonder..
tell you of a little imp planning to steal the cookies..:D
ask a thousand questions all on their own…
that tell of a life well-loved with humans……:)

comfort and heal the soul…
keep a secret that no one will know…..
can be passionate in a lover’s embrace..
can be ecstatic in a summer shower…
can be wet for no reason at all…
can be blurry with tears for someone long gone…
can be watchful from too many betrayals…
can be a reflection of your own self…
ask uncomfortable questions from a parent…
that damn your soul….
burn with a simmering anger..
cool with just an understanding glance…
search your face for a lifetime asking questions,expressing doubts..’Am I good?”Am I loved by both of you?’……

tender and young that see you as the judge and ask you to decide…
that are insecure because of a forgotten slap…
that don’t smile and lay bare a dishonest soul…
can be soft in a moment of tenderness…
can tell you when you are loved beyond doubt..
that make you wish you were the only one they saw..
that whisper of a ravaged soul…
that shout of a demented being…
that lech and make you feel unclean…
that convince you that evil exists…

that comfort your soul with just a glance…
that tell the story of a life well lived…
that shout of having gone through unspeakable horrors…
that seeth with rebellion…
that you would recognize even under a veil……:)
that are of a loved one so close…
that are a window to the soul…
that are a stranger’s and yet seem familiar…
that are a loved one’s and seem so distant…
that tell of a lifetime of laughter….
that speak of millions of hardships…
that have no hope left and still see plenty…
that are old and at a journey’s end…
that are naive and hopeful…
that are quiet and content…
that compliment you quietly with just a glance….

that tell the story of a lifetime…

So… what do your eyes say? 🙂

PS-I have no idea what it is with me and these one word subjects..:)..but sitting at the window on quiet winter afternoons and watching the world pass by can do that to you..:)

Most of us without realizing it subconsciously judge/decide what kind of a human being a person is on the basis of their eyes.Even when we don’t realize it, eyes speak volumes and tell you if someone’s being honest and sincere.
And I believe that a person’s character and how he/she has spent his lietime is written on their faces…..

    “Most of us without realizing it subconsciously judge/decide what kind of a human being a person is on the basis of their eyes”

    I did not know this……
    but yes eyes do tell a story….

    One more:
    Eyes can easily tell you if the person is drunk or not 🙂

    Terrific stuff. Those who say that eyes are the window to the soul know what they are talking about…beautiful eyes are
    pearls that you cannot get away from,
    jewels that you want to make your own…

    Awesome! ..

    And what does a blindman’s eyes say… or how does he communicate so many of these emotions…

    I am wondering, what must be your next one-word subject and waiting for it … You’re just pouring out … so fluently and beautifully…

    That Subtle Something:- Thank you..:)..
    Actually did think about a blind person while writing and I thought that the ones we think of as ‘blind ‘actually have many more emotions than we can possibly imagine..and as I have seen personally in their case we are the ones on the backfoot.

    Forget about us judging them or finding how they are as a human being because they can judge us by our voices and know instantly if we are genuine or not..:)they have the advantage ,not us as a blind friend put it…:)he loves finding all about people by their voice,if they shuffle their feet,if they are nervous…..and he is always right..:)

    have you noticed how our voices can give us away..a happy Hi! another hi lacking all enthusiasm..thats how they know….
    and oh !thank you so much again:)
