Soulful and sweet —

That’s what his eyes were like.

Shaded-black running shoes,

And faded jeans that fit snug;

He’s put together,

White shirt sleeves pushed up muscled forearms.

Eyes soulful and sweet; he caught mine.

I caught his; the train’s sway forgotten.

And conversation ambled,

As we sat in worn delusion.

He’s tired, warring with the need,

To let loose tonight.

He’s determined — has goals.

    Amanda, “Soulful and Sweet”is a beautiful poem. Your words capture the matter of fact sureness of the narrator as well as the loss and longing for the one with, “eyes hollow-azure”. Powerful final line, “Your memory burns deep.” The memories do burn deep. Super image. I hope you’re enjoying your weekend, we had sun today, a wonderful surprise. Please have a great evening and a wonderful Sunday. ~ Mia 🙂 💗
