“Closed Eyes” by Navnidhi Vyas.

She must be a queen of innocent eyes
She must’ve sweet smell of incense
She must be a stunning beauty
She must be a quiet music of all your poetry.

But she chose her own path, not with you, might be with someone else
I’m sure you must’ve helped her in that also
And masked your scratched, bleeding heart with a fake pleasant smile
You’ve suppressed this with all your rock solid strength
But failed to hide from your two little eyes

You know me, how am I
I can read minds
I had seen her, still there, in your eyes
And deep down in your heart
Time heals, but for you, it’s taking a long time

In these few years
You’ve endlessly tried to move her out of your heart 
But unknowingly shifted her within your heart
From the softest corner to
The giant palace, locked, to reside her forever in your heart
Where you’ve given her all freedom to roam around 
But you don’t want her and your feelings for her to come out

I know you want to free her and thus yourself
But you don’t know how
This suppression was a trauma, you’ve been through
As a result, you became blind 
With a healthy pair of eyes

That time has gone
It’s day time now
Darkness of night has disappeared
But you’ve still closed your eyes
You’re in the dilemma of illusion and truth, darkness and light
You don’t want to take a chance
You’re terribly afraid to get double folded blind

Can I give you a free advice?
I know
This is how I annoy you all the time
Gather all your courage, if it’s not enough, borrow some from me
To open your eyes
Because
It’s far more better to be blind
Than living life with a closed pair of eyes!

  1. I really like that free advice part of the poem, where you wrote:

    “Gather all your courage, if it’s not enough, borrow some from me
    To open your eyes
    Because
    It’s far more better to be blind
    Than living life with a closed pair of eyes!”

    It’s actually very good advice because we tend to do things like that, forget our resources and blindly follow. Thanks for sharing this poem, it really made my day!
