Mirrors Of The Soul

     Here now is a new poem, for the romantics out there. Not typical of my works, but I would say it is something that the ladies especially, might enjoy. I would appreciate some/any,  feedback from those of you who are reluctant to comment. If you read it, take a second or two to let me know what you think about my stuff, good or bad! I do respect your opinions when you chance to share them with me.

     Please have a fun-filled Friday,

Mirrors Of The Soul

She looked to find

only honesty.

She hoped to see it

in his eyes.

She longed to feel


she’d had enough

of lies.


 Would this be him,

the shy one?

Still waters” they say

run deep.”

Or would he

be also shallow,

and cause her more

to weep?


 But, she’d not judge

a forehand,

nor compare

to what’s behind.

She’d search his eyes

for answers.

And then his soul,

she’d find.

    • Thank you so much.. I appreciate that. That is an old saying..”The eyes are the mirror of the soul” and in this case “she” was looking for something beyond thefacade of the “man”. I am happy that you enjoyed it and took the time to comment.
