Eye Contact

If you look another person in the eyes and they look away,
Then your soul is free to look another day.

Don’t look a dog in his eyes, because you’ll never be free,
You’re chained to his soul forever, a bonded mystery.

When you look your love in the eyes,
That’s more than enough to hypnotize.

If you look yourself in the eyes,
The truth gets trapped in the mirror, but what about the lies?

Very deep and insightful. I look at emotion in a new way.10 out of 10. -Lydia
Another poem of intense emotion. Bravo. Keep it up.
The eyes are certainly the windows on our soul Free Faller, you express a strong view from the eyes of the soul you speak of. Could your love bethe reason why? Your poem has a rivers flow. 10 from Tai,
It's a very powerful piece now if I was to change anything it would be the last line of the second verse. Your second verse now reads When I look into your eyes I see a fighing soldier who fights and wins a war A person who could go through the strongest boulder. Now that's good, but if you want to you could write....When I look into your eyes I see a fighing soldier who fights and wins a war Never worrying about the enemy that is upon your shoulder. But it's your poem and if you want to leave the way it is that's okay also it is still powerful. Great Job.
