I don't let people look me in the eyes.
I feel completely exposed.
There are only a few people that I have ever been able to look deep into their eyes for long moments.
The first would be my childhood best friend. I think we had a secret conversation...telepathic...we were both strange.
Another would be my husband, of course.
Although it was YEARS before I could let him look into my eyes.
Even though we dated almost 4 years, I remember saying the wedding vows and not being able to look him in the eyes. Does that negate the vows?
Over the years, I have found those blue eyes see something I don't.
Even though I will never know what is in that brain of his, I now drink in the comfort of his eyes.
The others will stay my secret.
They would probably hate to know that I felt a common bond, let them SEE me, and what they thought was a random creepy chill feeling...... was actually them looking into my soul.
And that brings me to my final words...
"eyes are a window to the soul"
I have found this to be true....or at least into a person's motive:
deceit, fake, honesty, crazy, pain, joy, confusion, vacant
Here is what the Bible says:
“The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light, but if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!
I have a black heart (to quote a friend of mine).
So now all of you will be staring me down.....good luck!
