Her lament eyes
hid many unfinished tales,
and her silent wail
had shadows of many winding trails.

I gathered some courage
and cultivated some faith
to plunge into her
eyes arduous lanes

Lost in those eyes
was a loving soul
hardened by the darkness
of some toxic kohl

The past had rattled her being
with danger her eyes were flirting
nursing her pains one at a time
I caressed them with utmost care
soon her lost glare came back with vigor
Happiness that escaped her finally triggered
