Show Me Your Eyes - Poem by Sanjukta Nag

Only your infinite eyes can stop the time
That is running against my will
Snatching me from the green mouth of life.
I am mortified now with this avaricious mind,
As I used to savour worldly pleasure
Instead of pleasing your dreamlike heart.
All I have left now is a mortal life
Confined in an island of sterility,
Waiting so long for your enchanted feet
That can transform it into Cape of Good Hope.
Turn around; show me your deep dazzling eyes
To enlighten my black starless nights,
Spread your arms and hold my frightened heart tight,
Before the sprinted hands of time
Steal my dizzy soul from the cave of life.
