Her eyes return my gaze,
A gentle “Hello” at first glance.
Those chocolate brown coloured eyes,
So full of love and compassion.



                                                           Without a sound from my lips,
                                                                 A solitary cry escapes.
                                                           Her serene marble-like stare,
                                                            Peers straight into my soul.



I linger for that feeling once more,
Just before she flutters with a blink.
The brown sheen covers me wholly,
Softer than silk upon my skin.
This is a poem that I wrote yesterday, and I am dedicating it to :iconsophie-art:.

Oh my, this was such a pleasant surprise to wake up to this morning. I can't thank everyone enough to be even considered for a Daily Deviation, and now I feel so honored to have received one. :happybounce::squee::happybounce::squee::happybounce::squee:

Suggester says, "What captivated me about this piece is how the author managed to describe something that happened in an instant, with such passion and intensity, that's worth a lifetime"

Sub-par.

If by Sub-par, you mean not fancy, you are right. However, I find this poem striking in its simplicity. You don't have to use lots of big words to convey the feeling of a moment in time. I like it!

What you see as simplicity, I see as laziness, lack of will-power and artistic flow. And big words? Sub-par is not a large word, it is six letters. If you want to endorse this mediocrity, fine. I will, and cannot stop you. I's comments are just a premier artist's opinion. Simple as that.

I never said I loved it, but I can appreciate, and I think it is rather good for a beginner poet, which he clearly is. I may not totally agree with the DD, but I can see why people like the poem. I would suggest that smith4891 edit this poem as he becomes a more experienced poet, because I agree that it could be better. I know that you are just trying to be honest, and I know from experience that constructive criticism is always appreciated. I guess I just felt the need to say something positive (I can be a little weird like that).

Thank you for commenting here, and when I gain more experience, I may very well edit this, and a few others as I see where things can be better visually enhanced and appropriately worded. :)

Your welcome! Also, I'm pretty sure that the guy who originally commented, LoghainCarvo, has a joke account, so I wouldn't take his comments seriously. I'm a little ashamed that I did before seeing his gallery.

I can respect your opinion sir, but can you elaborate please? I would probably be more receiving to your opinion if you could explain your basis. :)

Can I elaborate? Yes, of course I can; in one word actually - Cliche.

Okay thank you. Please keep in mind I am a beginner level poet. I am pretty good with my novel, but poetry in general is new territory for me, so the cliché works right now. I will get better over time, and hopefully I can provide better work that you can appreciate more. :)
