He has the most adorable eyes you could ever fall for and a revealing smile that took my breath away. When I looked into his eyes – anytime – it was so hard to turn away. Sometimes, when I looked at him, everything in the world made sense. He made me smile when he didn’t even have to try.
I’d been warned against him by my ‘well wishers’, but I just couldn’t stop thinking of him. He often seeped into my thoughts in the wee hours of the night, at times when I least wanted to think of him. There’s something in his eyes that bemused me every time! I can’t say what but yes only I could feel it!
When I looked into his eyes, I felt my heartbeat everywhere, even in my toes. I wanted to do something bold, but I just smiled and walked away when his eyes met mine – not sure whether it was a smarter thing to do.
Some moments of togetherness was like knowing him for a lifetime! His flaws made him look just as perfect and with him around I felt all’s well in my life. And then… those eyes changed colours. I could see an expression of diffidence lying hidden in those dark deep eyes.
I could no longer bear those eyes of deceit that looked at me with oblivion. A pinch of memory, a flash, then it’s over! There was void all over. I stopped looking at his eyes – forever. But the something in his eyes continues to haunt me – especially in the nights when sleep is elusive.
I seek frantically the story left untold – the tale with an abrupt end – a tale of those eyes that spoke a thousand words and bore deep wounds into my soul.
