At First Sight - Poem by Nosheen Irfan

Our eyes met and spoke in a language
We both understood at once
And in the matter of a second
I felt and I knew you felt too
The gush of love, the flame of desire
We stood transfixed in a daze
Rooted in our sudden joy
Unaware of the sun's fire
That had burnt the earth to a molten gold
And I thought to myself, is this love at first sight?

They say love doesn't need words
It communicates in silent ways
At the moment it flashed upon me
It must be the ultimate truth
For without a word love had flowed from me to you
And you to me

The world came to a standstill
And the time paused
As long as our gaze held each other.

    It has been wonderfully inscribed on love at the first sight. Between the eyes of two opposite bodies such as male and female, love is generated without speaking any words. You have nicely inscribed...

    For without a word love had flowed from me to you
    And you to me

    The world came to a standstill
    And the time paused
    As long as our gaze held each other.
    Beautiful poem shared. Thanks for sharing.

    Vividly romantic recounting of the combustion of two souls who immediately see in each other all that typifies our highest desires. You communicate clearly our fascinating ability to communicate to each other without any words at all.

    Being oblivious to the fire of the sun melting the earth because of the trance of new love echoes powerfully in the memories of those who have experienced it. Oh, to live in the rapture of such a state, but to know that the sheer force of it would kill you indeed. Very romantic, indeed, dear Nosheen. Be blessed, my friend!
