This is the revised version of a poem I wrote long time ago, A lot of people already liked it, but I thought I could do even better than what I already had, I changed it quite a lot. The other version is still on, so you can compare if you like.
I am still open to other suggestions, whatever they will be.

And I want to thank Catrina, even though I didnt use her idea.

Enjoy! Or not

[and yes that's my eye]

Winter in her Eyes |revised|

There she goes, with her everlasting stare.
Frozen and white, as the ground is bare,
lifeless yet restless, cold as ice,
it's always winter in her eyes.

No sun can ever break her mood,
she never shines, whenever she should.
And not that she will ever melt,
for the rays will always get repelled.

Her hair, like icicles, cover her face
As she tries and succeeds, to hide her disgrace.
'Cause no one knows, not even the wise,
why it's winter in her eyes.

She wears that secret like jewellery
Never takes it off, never cares to see
that others not only stare and gaze
but also worry about her frosty face.

When only they would realise
the truth that lies, deep in her eyes.
They'd see the very thing they hold
And it would make her story, finally unfold.

  This was a good write, Janneke. I have read both versions of this poem and I definitely preferred this does an excellent job of describing the character, while leaving the mystery of what causes it to be winter in her eyes unsolved. Keep up the good work!

  Okay, to nitpick first:

The following lines do not rhyme openly, but poetically. The rest of your poem rhymes openly, so poetic rhyming here doesn't seem to do it for you:

No sun can ever break her mood,
she never shines, whenever she should.
And not that she will ever melt,
for the rays will always get repelled.

that others not only stare and gaze
but also worry about her frosty face.

Your grammer is ok, and so is your spelling, which is refreshing to see, lol. I don't know how many people on here have never head of spellcheck, though some I can understand. Anyways, it has a good flow, and nice verses. It's very eerie, at the beginning, and really pulls you in, but I think your ending is lacking a little bit. It sort of leaves you like an Alfred Hitchcock movie, and I don't like that feeling, lol. It could use a bit of tweaking on the end I suppose, but it's still a good poem. Nice job.

With Love,
Your 'Sister',

  This was nice Janneke. Though I enjoyed the first one I preferred this. The flow, rhythm and rhyme were tighter here and still could use a little improve but definitely an improve not that the first one was good...its just, you know what I mean.

Anyway, keep up the good work and take care my friend

Be happy

  I don't like this one again you've used the truth and lies in an interesting fashion but I just didn't entice me. Of should be off in this line as already stated above "Never takes it of, never cares to see" There is a laking in depth of your character development here and Many similar lines to the previous piece I read of yours of course it's not a crime for a writer to use multiple lines in repetition. I like the idea, but some elaboration would be nice. In this line I like yet much more than but because you complement the existing rhyme in addition to creating a smoother flow " lifeless but restless, cold as ice, vs. lifeless yet restless. In any case this won't turn me off from your writing I just think it needs more work. thanks for your time. peace.

  I liked this piece, I was expecting a different ending, this one left me wondering.. Anywho I liked your flow, it made me want to read more,hehe. But yeah, I guess I can sorta make my own idea of why this girl hides, and make it my own, dunno. I loved the title of this write, It just sounded mysterious and unique for some reason.

"Never takes it of, never cares to see."

"of" I think should be "off".

Anywho loved this piece, keep up the great work! Take Care Janneke!! I'll be back for more.
