Her Thing About Blue Eyes


She Had a Thing About Blue Eyes


she was a poem broken ..


only by a series of subtle


and a steady flow of lies ..

she was known

to argue with echoes ..

find fault

with perfection

and frown upon sorrow ..

but make love

with a hunger and passion

she reserved

only for men, with blue eyes ..

    If she pops round to see me, I will swoon. I'm a blue eyed boy, ya know! lol. Will she know I am, if I wear shades?!

    • Neville

      if you wear a monocle she might, but I bet she's neva seen a polecat wearing one of those before so she may find it a turn on Steven 🙂

    • Fay Slimm.

      An outstanding write -- your short-line technique of presenting intrigue in a few short lines is amazing - -this has to be one of your best and is now in my fave. list Sir N.............x

      • Neville

        I am both honoured and humbled ma'am .. to be sure, tis just like being knighted .. 🌹x

        • Fay Slimm.

          Ha ha - - then arise Sir Neville and scribe me some more of your bounteous offerings.................x

        • Christina8

          this is so descriptive. I just love it! I don't often favorite things but this is such a fine poem! You had me at the very beginning....blue eyes!

          • Neville

            thank you kindly & bluely 🙂

          • orchidee

            Ohh, I don't care! I'm gonna meet her, or one of your other lasses. Makes a break from KP - who I never see 99% of the time anyway. Well, not in person. On TV, in the papers, in jail (oops, she got away with something yet again) - yes!
            I paid the jailer the bail money to keep her IN. heehee.

          • Doggerel Dave

            Such smooth poetry, beautifully formed.....but why make a thing of wonder out of blatant discrimination?🙂
            (The remainder of her idiosyncrasies I intend to ignore within the frame of this discussion).

            • Neville

              that'll do nicely sir & you, are of course, well within your rights 🙂

            • Goldfinch60

              I hope your eyes are blue Neville.


              • Neville

                they are indeed sir 🙂

                was a poem
                I'm sorry, but this line by itself
                is a complete poem
                what arrangement of wording
                so many of us wannabees
                would have rushed it as 'broken poem'
                and render it a meaningless line...
                as-ever, dear Poet supreme
                I so gratefully, read and learn
                thank you! Hyung
                (oh and yes, I read the whole
                of this wonderfully poignant poem

                • Neville

                  You got me smiling all over again brother Mek .. well not all over .. all over my face tis true but .. 🙂
