Swimming in Sapphire Eyes

  • Poetry will always emerge out of the shadows of depression, shining like a star in the scarcity of light.

Poem Commentary

I got the idea from one of the Harry Potter books, the seventh one, actually......and I just love deep blue eyes.....not a pale, flat blue--deep blue. =] Picture found at this website: http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://th08.deviantart.com/fs29/300W/i/2008/080/b/d/Dumbledore__s_Eye_by_Rachezee.jpg&imgrefurl=http://elanor-x.livejournal.com/51444.html&usg=__VnD2LDIwaH5vjLa8IdaFx05CX5k=&h=393&w=300&sz=16&hl=en&start=6&um=1&itbs=1&tbnid=3FjerR-CRWNZFM:&tbnh=124&tbnw=95&prev=/images%3Fq%3Daberforth%2527s%2Beye%26hl%3Den%26rls%3Dcom.microsoft:*:IE-SearchBox%26rlz%3D1I7GPEA_enUS290%26um%3D1

Swimming in Sapphire Eyes

Glass, broken glass,

Sharp, powerful,

Stronger than me…

So addicting,

That bright sapphire eye that always appears in the fragments.

Oh, how I love to gaze into it,

those sapphire watery depths,

I swim in them, dive into them.

My happy place.

My addiction.

Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion.
