Eye Can'T Lie!

Non verbal signals, Understand the pupils,
When these are bigger, smaller and normal,
One is attracted to another, the iris open wider,
Black grape balls in the white eye balls glitter.
Look at the eyes and the eyes don't lie,
When the pupils are shrunk to the beat,
Of sorrow and sadness, though have a false smile,
Eyes speak thousand of mute words,
To show the expression of their minds,
When we are happy these are dilated,
When we are sad these are constricted,
When we are intoxicated and feel happy and sad,
These are either dilated or constricted,
As if the iris controls the light to control our emotion,
When we are lifeless, the eyes still speak the truth,
Pupils are dilated as if the Iris found the truth in light.
When we are dead, the pupils are big,
As If the happiness is found in that last breath.

Eyes speak thousands of mute words and are big when we have the last breath speaking the truth. Philosophical truths lie hidden in these and other lines. Wonderful thinker, the poet V.S is!
Eyes reflect a true picture of the heart, whereas mouth reflects the heart after a lot of blending. A wonderful poem.
A nice work of art written with insight after careful observation. Thanks for sharing. Please have a look at my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON.
A very beautiful and inspiring write. The eyes are the windows to the soul. A lot of tales can be told through the eyes. The eyes have it as they say. Enjoyed this write.
The eyes are the mirror of the soul. Let us look more in the eyes of our fellow human beings. More miracles may happen. Excellent poem, Veera.
