Ink-Eyes

Poem By Matthew Hyatt

The twinkle of a star
the color of a car
is never seen and adored
By the one with the Ink-Eyes.

All she sees is the black of night
Only hears anothers plight
To look at great literature and fine art
She never had the chance to start.

Her hate is deep
For those who can sleep
And dream of great things
But never hear the cries
By the one with the Ink-Eyes.

Comments about Ink-Eyes

I like it because it's simple, short but very vivid too. Good one
I really like the way you describe 'Ink-Eyes' obvious displeasure for those who can see all the things she cannot.
I love it. Great work. Definitely your best piece, of the ones I've read so far.
I liked this poem...is the girl blind? Ink-Eyes is a creative way of describing it.
Kind of interesting, ultimately impossible to figure out.

Thanks For The Pain

Today is the day
I wanted so much to say
Thanks for the tears
Thanks for the fears

Sea Of Faces

Ten million people each with their problems
Why should anyone care?
They would only stop to gawk or stare
I see the city lights all around me

Majesty Turned Murderer

The ocean was once a place
Of beauty and grace
Nevermore shall it be
Since it took them away from me

The Secret Of Life

To stare into eternity
Is to stare into your eyes
Perfectly holding the answers to the lies
I look at you, at your blank face

Anticipated Dread

These bars, cold iron and steel
Like death's touch they feel
Keeping me in my place they stand firm
While trapped here bad thoughts churn
