My Beloved's Eyes

My beloved has eyes
like deer - Mriganayanee -
soft, expressive,
radiating innocence.
Everytime she looks at me
there is a ghazal.

My beloved has eyes
fish-shaped - Meenakshi -
long eyes, with bewitching
eyelashes full of
temptation, seduction.
Everytime she looks at me
there is a sin.

My beloved has eyes
that create love - Kamakshi -
half-closed, with a light
that leads to celestial union.
Everytime she looks at me
there is a prayer.

My beloved has eyes
that show the universe - Vishalakshi -
within them, vast ocean
of timeless eternity.
Everytime she looks at me
There is moksha.

To His Eyes

Those eyes, those eyes. Seductive bloody eyes of yours,
I need a shower every time they look at me,
Just to sizzle out the mental pornography
And stop myself from begging, drooling on all fours
Dammit, they make me follow you, sneak behind doors -
An Adonis-possessed, voyeuristic zombie
Trapped in their twinkling I lose the will to be free -
Those eyes, those eyes. Seductive bloody eyes of yours

Let me have my night's sleep you enticing bastard,
And I want darkness when I close my eyes, not those
Eyelashes summoning me to rank surrender.
So now that you've got me absolutely mastered
You can switch off that magnetism, I suppose
And come and hold me closer, tighter you fucker.
