Locked Eyes

In the face of infinite space between us,
Our eyes were locked on to each other
through the medium of eternal affinity,
withstanding even the barrier of time.

Eyeing a single flutter would have meant
a lifetime of separation, unendurable.
Our lives were captured in that moment
where the effect of time became inconsequent...

    Its so wonderful a feeling to read
    The eternal relation taken fold...
    I rememeber a quote.... to be told

    'It is wrong to think that love comes from
    Long companionship and persevering courtship.
    Love is the offspring of spiritual affinity and
    Unless that affinity is created in a moment,
    It will not be created for years or even generations”

    Enjoyed the feeling of Love expressed in this poem.

    'where the effect of time became inconsequent...'
    Beautiful poem with sensible imagery. The last lines sums it all so vividly.

    You have rightly captured the spirit of the theme. I am reminded of one of Mukesh's songs written by Hasrat Jaipuri: 'Dil ke nazar se, nazron ke dil se'. What do you say about 'nazron ke dil se? '. We will be thinking about it for the whole lifetime. Your poem also reflects the same essence. Good.

    I'm a firm believer it's all about timing. Is it miraculous when two souls fall into the same instant in time? Perhaps we all exist at the same point in time because we are all interconnected. Problem is that we don't always have our eyes open. Nicely done!

    Very sweet and romantic. A moment in time one does not
    often forget. '10! '

    You use a most evocative metaphor to help you describe a moment in time beyond time when the essence of who you really are is truly manifest. Love can do that to you (if you're lucky) . Great theme. Great poem. Love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
