What do you see? – she whispers in his ears
He takes a deep breath and blows away the dust mustered across the bolted window. Keeping his crossed arms on it, he overlooks the ocean of habitation. Among the hustle bustle and the lazy Saturday afternoon commotion, he hesitates to answer.
Have you seen those eyes? – he whispers back
She unwraps the cigarette pack and lights one up
What do you mean? – she says gently in a nonchalant way
Have you seen it?
His back facing towards her and his face towards the scorching sun, he continues –
The one in a million eyes, those pair which is specially made for you, which when touches you, for time to time, makes you feel like someone has touched your soul.
The eyes which sees the ugliest of things but still is filled with love
The forgiving eyes
The pity eyes
The careless eyes
The eyes which shutters in front of camera
The eyes which is wide open and alive, when you talk about our passions
The same pair of eye from which I tell you my stories
You definitely would have for once in your lifetime seen those pair
It’s to die for!
He leans away from the window and straightens out his arms. Collecting his thoughts, he puts both hands in his pocket and continues –
Not the physical death, that’s so common so definitive
This death makes you immortal
The feelings, the radiance, the grace of those eyes can lift you and devour you at the same time
These eyes I tell you, have language of its own
The wonders of life are witness by these eyes
The dream is cast and harnessed by those eyes
Tell me darling, have you seen those eyes?
Suddenly, he hesitates and looks at her. The cigarette has taken its last breath and smoke fills the room.
For few seconds in those moments, she is invisible to him.
He paces towards her and sees a glee in her eye
Caressing him while putting her fingers through his hair
She says sweetly –
Don’t blink my love, or we shall disappear!
