The Sparkle in Your Eyes

Accidental Poet


You caught me

Quite by surprise

When “Hi” you softly said

And I fell into your eyes


Maybe it’s my imagination

But in your eyes I thought I saw

A sparkle of light

That left me in total awe


In that brief moment

I felt your touch upon my heart

And there you left

Your own beautiful art


Do I believe my own rational?

Where I typically doubt myself

Or can I afford to

Jump down from that lonely shelf


Is it wishful thinking

That makes me dream of you

That my prayers to God

Have been answered by you


Guess I’m left to just my prayers

That the sparkle in your eyes

Is really just for me

Giving a wink to the skies

    A fine write AP. It's said: 'A house may have lights on, but there may be no-one at home'. Same as if we may look into some people's eyes. Am I 'at home', or am I emotionless? Am I made of wood, like some actors?! heehee.

  • orchidee

    I have a naughty version too. Can't tell it publicly, or I will make myself swoon! lol.

    • Accidental Poet

      To swoon, or not to swoon? That is the question. And true of some people's eyes, much or not to be seen.

      I never knew you thought of me like this or was it from an accidental poet who was so swooned up in love he lost his way? a beautiful write, AP.

      • Accidental Poet

          Thank you Accidental Poet.

          Beautiful, simply beautiful.

          The eyes are powerful - they are the window to one's soul.

          Keep writing

              Thanks Michael. But I admit, an imaginary piece.

              Very good write, that sparkle shows you the way to somebodies/everybody’s heart.

              It is amazing how much the eyes can tell, or how much we can read in them. Very beautifully said, AP!

              • Accidental Poet

                Thanks Fred. I appreciate the compliment.

                Beautiful poem, AP! You can tell so much by looking into someone's eyes, it can be such a magical moment. You really captured that moment well in this poem!
