Eyes of Eden

Okay, I know not everyone's into poetry, but I write it now and then when I've got nothing better to do (which is never, so more like, when I feel like not doing what I should be doing.)

Either way, I wrote this poem and had nothing else in mind to post today, so here it is.

Go easy on me, poems aren't one of my strengths, despite how many I write.

Eyes of Eden

Cross the world,
Face the black,
Run for you,
Then double back.

Watch your face,
See you smile,
Stay with me
for a while.

Reach for you,
But turn away,
Must forget,
Or fall astray.

You are fading,
Fading fast,
Let you go,
Relive the past.

What I was,
Was tied to you,
Shed my skin,
Follow through.

Eyes of Eden,
Look for me,
Take my hand,
Set me free.

I am day,
You are night,
Make your stand,
Hang on tight.

Lead the way,
'til death we fight,
For you are dark,
And I, the light.

So there you have it.

Any ideas on what it's about?

I'll give you a hint. There's no wrong answer.

The moon and the sun?
It had a really good, fast pace.

I like! :) I love poetry and I write it every so often. Some times its a nice break from the word count. Have a great weekend. :)

Great poem. I'd think it's about a relationship that can't last.

I like it. I think it's about temptation and the strength to overcome it.

You are right--no wrong answer.

Just the way I like my poetry. Will the Talents of JKM never cease?

Not your strong point huh? I think you nailed it pretty well. At least, you communicated some deep themes beautifully and effectively. My interpretation is that it's about an unrequited love, something that cannot be, star-crossed even. It's beautiful however people wish to interpret it. Thanks for sharing, Jessica :)

Hmmm, maybe rebirth? Love? In any case, it's very lovely and you underestimate yourself. I loved the pace - my kind of poem :)
