Sad brown eyes

Sad brown eyes

A Poem by Coyote Poetry


Love should bring joy. Not sadness.












Sad brown eyes
A brown eye angel is crying in our bedroom for me.

In a turmoil of a kind love.

A paradise of burning emotion.

You can create a strange prison.

I held her too tightly.

I didn’t hold her enough.

The fine line of giving and taking leave you confused.

Love held on by a few words won’t last the night.

I try to speak softly and don’t create a wall of hate.

When life’s disappointments surround you.

Slow down and think.

I close my eyes.

Re-set my thoughts.

Allow the pain to evaporate into the night.

I told her “I love you since the first moment I looked into your brown eyes..”

We sat  together in a silence and  I held  her tightly.

I whispered. “Stop the fear and hate before the walls of love falls down forever.

In a nightmare  you  didn’t love me. I was alone”

I fell to my knees and prayed at her feet.

“My only wish.

Please don’t leave my life.”

I open my eyes and my brown eye Angel embraced me.

She told me. “You are my first real love.

When you leave me. I will never be complete again.”

I whispered “I love you and I need you.

Your love made a man running in circles find peace.”

Sweet dreams can become nightmares.

A wise man is gentle with his wife and children.

Love bring love. Kindness bring kindness.

Some words should never be spoken.

For words can break a heart forever.

I will go to my brown eye angel and beg for forgiveness.
