I once saw into her eyes.
And at that instant, a crucial
part of me slipped away from me
into her eyes;
Her eyes, which are like a devil
and god alike.
I wish to drown in those eyes
and retrieve the thing that i lost;
For rootless and incomplete is life
and I must go there at all cost-
But it is some worse-than-death charge
that makes me wait
Sometimes her eyes float by-
I could stand and sink for all age
into the dark mysteries, that if unleashed
from confinement, would swallow
the sun and the moon, and consume
A moment and a glimpse that eats into a thousand hours-
eats me from the core of my being
like an ephemeral effervescence that melts all
and soon shall have me hollowed
like a tree; I shall than fix myself
and shelter birds
who fly so free
but never know.
And everytime i reached
for those eyes,
I was pulled back a-ground like
the moths and the flies.
I am demented likea circus-lion
in a circus-tent.
I await a moment heaven-sent,
when god-mother hands will have these
cage bars bent,
and lead me to a quiet calmness
where oceanic eyes
will brew no storm;
A moment that i fear is caught
and an unreachable bottom
of the post that the post man will never
touch- touch now, nor tomorrow.
And tomorrow when i see her eyes
and sigh a sky-inhaling sigh,
I shall let a little more
of my spirit go.
And in time i shall be extinguished,and the fiery bubbling.
