Look Through

Look through

I look through my eyes
and stare at your try
that speaks only lies
and belies my expectation

have I to revel?
in earnestness and speak all
I feel disgusted at an attempt
that you are prompted

You can't cheat me
and still, feel free
at vain attempt
that speaks of the treacherous act

You are no gentleman
apart from being a good human
You are speaking to a woman
who has always trusted you as a man

I shall go beyond
and remain fond
but not at the cruel attempt
to ditch me with a dishonest act

Glorious. More touching in its ingenuity - and that's rare. Rusty puts it perfectly. I only just read Wallace Stevens' poem 'Modern Poetry' on his archive on this site last night - 'The search for what will suffice'...
yes it is a mind game, played as a book, you might find a man who will bang you like a book one day very well done heck i like the way you do things, was it a impulse or did you have to work on it, the poem let me know heck Warm regards AJS
I think what I like most about your sensual poems is, they are written in such a way the reader can interpret their own degree of sensuality into the poem. The metaphor you use is unusually delightful if one is a writer. I would say more but would just be gushing. Looking forward to many more of your delightful pages. SPM
