About the Poem

Inspiration for poems can be found anywhere. I listen closely to what people say - hoping for a phrase that speaks to me.

Some of us were reading a magazine and someone read the phrase: Don't just open your eyes. I began thinking that often we just open our eyes and fail to open our hearts and our souls. We tend to keep ourselves closed off from feelings, afraid to be hurt.

This poem was written as a cry from a woman afraid to open up to love.

A Few Visitor Comments

This is a great poem with feeling and emotion--I only wish that is was longer.

Open My Soul

Donít just open my eyes,
open my soul!
Join your heart to mine
to make me whole.

Give me a world
Iíve never been shown,
show me the places
Iíve never known.

Teach me to see through your eyes.
Take me to heaven through your sighs.
