You Are A Quiet Guy


You don’t talk much,
You are a quiet guy, they said.
Quite unaware of endless conversations,
I’m having in my head.


I Made An Eye Contact

Was getting my bike fixed, let mechanic alone with his craft
Came on a roadside, watching vehicles rushing from both sides
Made an eye-contact with the glorious & bright eyes who had
No intentions of making me feel like I never felt before for few seconds

Those genuine eyes and simplicity in her poise, mesmerized me
She, on bike with a guy who didn’t look like her special one, but like a brother
Had so much hurry that he didn’t realize what those moments were
Rushed like others, leaving me fretful and disgruntled

But I couldn’t stop thinking about it, trying to understand that feeling
And after some time, she returned, again we made an eye contact like
We seeing each other for the first time, none of us anticipating it
Again for few seconds, it made me feel like I never felt before

As they were about to pass me, she blinked showing an acceptance
That we knew each other and looked straight giving me a hope
As Paulo Coelho said things that happen once may not happen again
But things which happens twice will happen the third time

This time she returned, alone, dropped her brother somewhere
As she was coming closer and close I made up my mind that
I will smile this time before she blinks, because eyes are reflections of soul
And smile is the shortest distance between two people

She was coming; my heartbeats fastened, and sweat on forehead
But this time… she passed like no one was there on roadside
My mouth stuck open, contemplating what about that smile which will
Never come for making the connections which I never saw coming

Reminiscing all, again and again, realized that eye-contact wasn’t
Like any other eye-contact I had with other mean beautiful girls who
Think we are greedy for their attention because they are beautiful
That qualifies them to be the queen of the world

But this time it was different, thought what mind couldn’t conceive
was understood by souls connected, but are eyes this powerful?
Or the mighty intensity of connection was the factor for infatuation
Maybe this wasn’t meant to be the third time or that wasn’t her brother

Will Smith said don’t chase people, the right ones will come and stay
So I could see her upto my eyesight could go, realized that eyes have limitations
When they are alone, but can go boundlessly deep when connected
The crazy fact is, eyes that connect souls can lead astray when heart is involved
