Treasure Island

Tirupathi Chandrupatla


He was wearing
Sunglasses, those
Reflecting like mirrors
Eyes hidden inside
All I could see
Was double of myself
I had no idea
What was on his mind
He could read me
Like a poster on the wall
I felt a wee bit

    This would disturb me also. For it is so valuable to talk to some ones eyes. (Report) Reply

    An interesting piece. I also have always felt uncomfortable when not being able to see the eyes of others. A nice write! (Report) Reply

    Your poem reminds me of a thriller called 'Killer in dark glasses' by the BBC. You have an interesting poem. Well done. I should explain the story line was about a young man knowing somebody was trying to kill a well known business man in Spain. So the young man goes off knowing in a certain town the killer will strike and be wearing dark glasses. And, of course, everybody is wearing sunglasses. I think your poem captured the adventure of not knowing the ID of the killer. Hence, the use of the word 'Disturbed.' You created the image of that killer for me in your poem. Once again well done.
