Whose Eyes Speak – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

“Your absence has not taught me how to be alone, it has merely shown me that when together we cast a single shadow on the wall.” Douglas Fetherling

Whose Eyes Speak

How my hands traced her body
is a surety of faintness but that is
not a summation of her being,
her tenderness begetting compassion,
or her mindfulness so centred,
not forgetting her sharpness,
an intelligence beyond compare,
none of her can be divided nor
singularly worshipped, only
taken as whole, and yet she is a
beauty whose eyes speak into 
the depths of my aching soul.

  4. If there were more men like you, capable of appreciating so wholly women like her, there might be more women like her. A beautiful and moving tribute.
