By Blue Carrisole

In your eyes
I exploit the warm barriers of pessimism
Its my comfort place,
My safe space
And now, its glow rains on my face
As I dance on the blades of its malice

In your eyes
I’m anointed the cold colours of truth
Because I shriek at the touch
Of the cold shackles of lies
And I whisper stories
So old,
Gloomy, but wise. 

In your eyes
I’m a striking entity of pity
All the connotations of sympathy
I’m an enticing haze of sorrow
With promises of scorching pain that will brush against your skin, so lightly
It leaves your follicles lusting.

In your eyes
I’m titled the villain with the prettiest smile
The protagonist with the hope corroding cries
The supporting characters with the hope supporting lies
And the plot that begins by saying goodbye

It's not my intention to leave,
But I hate the way I look in your eyes

  1. I found Blue Carrisole’s piece “In Your Eyes” fascinating in the way the narrator pictures himself (or herself). To write: “In your eyesI’m a striking entity of pity” or “In your eyes I’m titled the villain with the prettiest smile” Makes the reader really get a picture of what the narrator is trying to say.   The last two lines are also intriguing: “It’s not my intention to leaveBut I hate the way I look in your eyes.” That’s worth a great deal of literary analysis.
