And caused me to look into your eyes
Our eyes met
I remember what I saw
I saw burning ice in those eyes.
And the eyes wept.
My fragile heart wept too.
The rhythm in the air seemed to correspond with our heartbeats
Then, the atmosphere became colourful
Then, time stopped
Then, the universe seemed not to exist
It was just us.
This is not love at first sight.
No, it’s not.
It’s the language of the universe.
It was you casting your spell on me.
You enchanted me!
But I am yet to forgive you.
Neither have I forgotten,
How you made me look straight into those burning eyes of yours
How you led me through to your heart
Then I fell in love with you
You noticed it
And you stopped me
You stopped me from loving
How could you be so heartless?
Yet your beauty beclouds me
Her canny, wow!
Her body still carnalizes me
And her touch leaves me paralyzed
But I must let go
Maybe it’s what she wants
Maybe, its God's will
But I know I will see her again
And the next time we meet
I will ask her to look straight into my own eyes
Then, she will tell me what she sees in them
And maybe, the spell she has cast on me be broken
Or maybe be transferred to her
Then, I will gladly watch as she begs for my love
Because, then I become the Enchanter.
