your beautiful eyes………….by Kim Tairi

when you first hit me
aurora borealis
eyes filled with fire…

those beautiful eyes
mesmerised me and the pain
became bearable

noone else saw it…
to frightened to say – I struggled to walk away

  1. Lovely, Kim. Aurora borealis is a great image, but I also love the way the word feels on the tongue. A 17 syllable poet sounds cool. I’ll have to check out your website to learn how to say more with less. Thanks for sharing.

    You have so much here in 8 lines. That you make the speaker the only one who sees the “eyes filled with fire” adds so much power to this.
