Im a big fan of the eyes and believe that they are the mirror to the soul. sometimes its so hard to look at someone or to be looked at knowing that. the eyes say it all. wonderful piece. andi like your new picture too! take care
I'm sure there are plenty of other meanings to this, but what I get is that you don't like to see yourself because it makes you feel exposed. I know how that is. I was standing in for an actor the other day in rehearsal (he was on a college visit) and of course a picture of me and a few other people ended up in the paper I realized how much I don't want to see myself. Anyway, I'll go take a look at the picture.
is it strange to categorize this as a love poem?? if it is, well - so be it. you don't like your reflection in the mirror but you like to see your face reflected in his iris. why?? my interpretation is that you're in love with this person. you tell me if this is far fetched. anyway I really like your vivid descriptions. your poem fits to the picture. very well done, Amy.
The sweet call of egalitarianism rings true here. If anyone whom we encounter as a reflection is placed on a pedestal, we've missed the sheer quality they indeed mirror that is rightly ours. Pardon my reflection on this, it's a great piece, and there's nothing to change. Now that the green suns have risen in your eyes there are not skies beyond your ablity. nan
this is really cool! it is strange to see yourself mirrored back in someone else's eyes like that. perhaps it is because it is so fascinating that we can look at it. mirrors are often harsh in the strange light of a bathroom. seeing yourself in someone's eyes mutes the effect. well done, Amy! very unique, as usual.
I wouldn't dub the picture a "painting", but a work of art it certainly is. Must have been a time consuming effort putting it together too. The poem's good too. May I suggest you try some persona poems though? Pick a character, try to imagine how they view the world and express their viewpoint. I think you might just be very good at doing that, like you seem to get under the skin of things...
I think this is a nice write. Though the person that is the first person in this ('I' see my face etc) is feeling a little bad about themselves, seeing as they can stand themselves in someone else's eyes but not their own, and I think that's a great meaning for a piece. Nice work!
