This is the latest installment in the “Try Looking At It Through My Eyes” challenge, as devised by Bold Kevin on his blog Voices of Glass. If you’ve missed any of the previous posts, you can read them here:

Day Two – “My Eyes”
Take and publish a photo of your eyes (or if you prefer simply look in the mirror). Using no less than 50 words imagine those eyes belonged to a stranger and you are looking into them for the first time. What do those eyes alone say to you about the person whose eyes they are?
More than bellies, more than breasts, more than legs, noses, knee-caps and toes, the eyes are the part of the body I am most drawn to. That is, unless I’m walking behind someone, in which case the posterior is the body part I’m most drawn to…for reasons all too obvious (and irrelevant) to get into right now! :p
Ever since I was a child and read the phrase in a book I’ve long forgotten the title of, I’ve firmly believed that the eyes are the window to the soul. Through them we can see everything that someone stands for; their hopes, their beliefs, their loves, passions, desires and dreams.
Someone’s eyes reveal if they’re lying or being honest, if they love or loathe you and whether they are on the side of good, evil or occasional naughtiness.
Someone’s eyes tell us all we need to know about who they belong to, as long as we know how to read them.
In the case of my own eye(s) above, looking at them if they belonged to a stranger, the first things that come to mind are:
♥ Bewildered ♥ Lost ♥ Alone ♥ Confused ♥ Tired ♥ Melancholic ♥
♥ (Possibly) on the side of occasional naughtiness ♥
♥ (Definitely) in need of eyebrow pluckers ♥
♥ Strong ♥ Sexy ♥ Cute ♥ Lovely ♥
♥ Keen eye for fashion! ♥
♥ Passionate ♥
♥ Broken ♥
What do you see, bearing in mind I’m a stranger and you’re looking into them for the first time?
