HE HAD SUCH QUIET EYES

by BIBSY SOENHARJO

 § §§
The poem is about a persona, a lady who fell for the
wrong man. She was fascinated with his ¶quiet eyes· and
believed that his eyes showed his true emotion and
feelings for her. The man·s eyes had the power to
charm her and made her believe him and be nice to
him.
However, the man was actually a ¶pleasure seeking
man·, a flirt. As the lady was truly fascinated and
charmed by the man, she did not listen or did not want
to listen to any advice concerning the man·s true
behaviour. In the end, she realized her error and was
broken hearted.
