Those Eyes

Shy, feeling like an alien, she entered.

She knew no one, and no one knew her.

None of us were aware of a new student joining us.

She was a girl who could walk down the street without causing a disturbance.

A plain Jane.

She curled into her seat, ready to shut herself, like a tortoise.

None of the guys spared her another glance.

And neither did I, my attention dedicated to my best mates and a special part of it to the walking talking clique of gorgeousness.

Nothing else qualified to give me a good enough distraction.

Until I met those eyes.

Eyes that have no possibility of existing on anyone else like the way they did on the shy soul.

Eyes that held strength, a seeking, a searching, for something unknown.

Eyes that blindfolded my own to the world for that one random moment our gazes locked.

The clique of gorgeousness had blaring beauty.

Those eyes of the shy soul swallowed all of that.

Those eyes shocked me into the epiphany of the stunning beauty before my own, a miracle none of the guys had the sense to notice.

Those eyes occasionally caught mine, but never deliberately.

She barely noticed me.

Not once did she turn in my direction.

Not once did she lock our gazes from just two feet away and shake the earth beneath me again.

Not once did she give me a chance of finding out just what would happen if I looked into those eyes a few seconds more.

The sight from at least ten feet away was frustrating, like a light in the dark snatched away.

She bestowed the light only to the girl next to her, who is not the person to pay that sort of attention.

Then the opportunity I wanted came, for just a moment, revealing the incredible length of her lashes that framed the mystical beauty.

The mystical beauty that was bewitching.

The mystical beauty she took away with her to the next phase of her life.

The mystical beauty that left without sparing another moment.

Those eyes, I wanted to see again.

Just one more time.

    1. Thank you so much, Bhavana ❤ Haha, I wish 😀 I can draw, but not as so soulfully beautiful like the artist who sketched these eyes 😀 Wish I knew who it was, so I could have mentioned them to give credit.

      I have posted some drawings of mine on on a page, you can check them out if you like, dear 🙂 :
