Beauty In The Eye - Poem by Abhay Vignesh Liginlal

Flying into the sky of my dreams
From the cage of life
You perch on branches & fields
Dainty bird that you are
While I am a spellbound statue
Staring at the world that you are, forever;

A flute of reed vibrant
With the music that you are
In this world’s stage;

A stem with thorns
Decked with the rose that you are
In the garden of love;

A harp with strings
Played by the nymph that you are
In a heaven of symphony;

A dropp of dew
On the lotus that you are
In a river of feelings;

A flame of hope
On the lamp that you are
In the darkness of ignorance;

A trail of footprints
Left by your delicate feet
On the sands of a desert;

A spot of blemish
On your dainty cheek
Radiant with the blush of beauty;

Time never married this world
Their child eternity is never born & will never die
But if at all my love for you be madness
In the wildest of your dreams
Let me revel in an asylum of memories
As long as I live
Neither time, space nor consent
Is a barrier before my love for you;

Break & break convention
World will be as how you want it,
Dream & dream forever
Love will be as how you feel it;

But where are you my playmate
From dreams of yesterday
Where are the memories to cherish?
You are a kiss on desire’s cheek
My heart’s lone languish
In a solitary life
Love is a reflection
On time’s mirror
Becoming infinite
In between yesterday & today;

While branches sway & leaves tremble
In the gust of cold wind,
The sky embraces the earth
By drenching it with rain
To hold the concert of ripples
On the surface of every puddle,
And the world shivers
Before the haunting music
Of thunder & lightning,
Once the storm is over
The sun will come out
From clouds which were once dark,
Until then, I will preserve my love
Within lines of verse,
While I keep repeating certain lines
In poem after poem
As reflections are never the same
In every mirror,
Like beauty in the eye of a beholder.

    Break & break convention.
    World will be as how you want it,

    Beauty is not always what u see.Relishing it for a moment s only biological pleasure.Or may be poetic.True beauty needs be explored explored again and again trhough hearts.The only problem is that heart has its own defined convention.People cannot change its rhythms.Its on its own.Otherwise it is a machine.A good and poignant write.

    This poem is somehow full of love and great admiration. The beauty in the eye somehow could reveal almost every emotion inside that we sometimes fall into. Good poem. Like it. (Report)Reply

    Do you respect and love yourself as gacefully as you love the other person? If you do then you have nothing to worry about cause you wont lose yourself in the spheres of this burning fire of passion and physical love. I will definitely print it out and putting it to my favorite ones. (Report)Reply

    lovely imagery...love the use of repetition in the beginning, it sets a nice rhythm. However, the last stanza is my favorite...I feel like it can stand on its own as a separate poem.
    Nicely done!

    So much beauty and sensitivity in your verses, woman is presented like an idol, like an relief of pain, like music that make vibrating flute. She is a 'symphony' that comes from harp, the 'dew on the lotus'.She is all the delicate and amazing things of this universe that makes soul vibrate.'let me revel in an asylum of memories/as long as live'.You extrapolate love and passion to infinite.'As reflections are never the same in every mirror/like beauty in the eye of beholder' This last two verses are the quintessence of poem.Memories cant be changed, last forever, same as the beauty of your love, never a reflection touch different mirrors in same way.Awesome.Keep writing..Cristina Teodor (Report)Reply
