Eyes say so much about a person.

You can see emotions, love, fear and what matters for the person
all just in the eyes.

You meet someone new.
You look in their eyes - they show you how much they want to share of their soul with you.

You can spread sadness, fear, anger and happiness just with your eyes.

You don’t have to show your emotions with a smile or a grumpy face.

The eyes are enough - the eyes show how you really feel
and what your heart beats for.

Your pupils dilate when you see or think of someone you love.

You can decide - how many emotions you want to share with a person just with one little look.
[you] sat on a park bench
Thunderclouds surround [your] head
[you] glare harshly at passersby
None above [your] wrathful glance
The darkest storm withers
And yields to fogs of gray
As [you] eclipse once sunny skies

"Hey [you]"
Squeeks the smallest of girlish voices
"What. Do. You. Want, small one?"
[you] wheeze through gritted teeth
"Why do [you] look so grumpy?"
Elicits green eyes between blonde pigtails
"Buzz off you nosy mouse! [i'm] grumpy
Can't you see that!?"

"Why so grumpy, it's a lovely day"
[you] cross [your] arms defiantly
"Lovely?  Hah!  Dumb little girl"
Her face scrunches up
"I'm not dumb"
[you] turn your face away
To cast [your] glance
At other poor happy victims

"Life's pretty good, I think."
As she opens candies wrapped
"Who made you an exp..."
As [you] try to finish fiery words
She places chocolate in [your] mouth
Brown smear across [your] cheek
A moment hangs pregnant in the air
The building of a storm

Seconds drag through eternity
A twitch at corners of [your] lips
But a little girlish gap-toothed grin
Drains [you] of feelings so hostile
As brutal youthful honesty
breaks foul moods, and makes [you] smile
Isn't it strange what ends up breaking through your bad moods?
I'm not selling, I'm not telling
I'm not correcting someone's spelling
I'm not preaching, not out-reaching
I'm not book or CD releasing

I'm not dissing, or **** kissing
I'm not convincing or insisting
I'm not setting out to plague you
Evangelise or persuade you

I'm not bribing you into daring
I'm not chiding you into caring
In fact I'm doing nothing shocking
I'm not boycotting or mocking

I'm just saying hi... Still here... alive
You dont have to share... or actually even care
In fact I dont mind
If you're not even there

This after all is Social Media
I prefer it best low key & immediate
Throw away, blow away, meet & greet
Oh, and be polite, this is a public street
Getting older I admit I am becoming less cuddly
Or drawn to people who are fussy & bubbly
A lot of the time I don't say my farewells
And I always react badly to being compelled

I hate... waiting in traffic or queues of any kind
Bar-staff who can't serve more than one at a time
Dogs that yap and yap and yap
Public restrooms that don't have a hot tap

Did I mention dogs that yap and yap..?
Well ok, dog owners too not picking up their crap
Kids disrespecting their Mothers
All kids not listening, talking over each other

People who talk to me because I'm sat on my own
Like I need company or my life's been postponed
I would say cinema audiences but then why would I
Go sit in the dark re-breathing other people's bacilli?

I've never been what might be said to be forgiving
You don't stop being stupid just because you've stopped living
I'm at my most tolerant over a long distance call, but
You might say I'm at my best when you havent met me at all

It has been said I have some good qualities
In that I am totally unmoved by All religion and politics
Smiling to myself a great deal through my day
Endlessly amused listening to what people say

So there it is another day spent unfriending the World
Seeking out the shade as Life's meaning unfurls
Old King Log asleep on the bottom
Solitary & nugatory and trying hard to be forgotten

She spoke the words "I love you,"
as if they were dripping from her mouth.
Desire and longing where written in her eyes.
This fragrance of hers, was intoxicating.
One could almost choke on it.

Stay away from love.  
For it can truly be sickening.
Especially if you haven't caught it already.

Grumpy grey sky stares,
At the conquered water world;
Armies of clouds roar!

I much prefer it when it rains;
theres much less pressure on the day.
It makes me feel like it's alright,
to waste a day alone inside

and wrap myself up in a blanket,
shut out the world. To be quite frank it
hardly makes a lot of sense;
sometimes, I just don't help myself.

Look far and wide for some excuse,
roll left and right, avoid the truth;
rip it all up to start anew,
as often, restless minds will do.

I don't know what to do,
Mother-in-law is coming to stay for a week or two,
I bribed the devil for help,
It painfully began to yelp,
Mothers-in-law are dangerous,
In hell ominous ,
Also there they have their say,
They want their own way,
Even Satan is moulded to soft clay.
If you love your spouse,
Welcome her to your house,
See she comes alongside you,
Not between you.

They whirl and swirl and dive
But do they?
The no see ‘ems, You can’t see ‘em
but you can feel them there
Cavorting and frolicking, invisible in the air
A dinner time dance, gluttonous splurge
You’ll know all about their evening soirée
When you discover the main course is
… You.
Stupid bugs. Biting my legs. I look like a ****** addict that can’t tell his legs from his arms.
