In a fractional instant, when brilliance of a fire
Blinds the eye and smears love with egoistic desire.
In the blink of an eye, mountains fall
Then Oh! how can love, amidst this storm, stand tall?
In the blink of an eye when even the heavens cry
Then who am I to stay sane, as I watch us die.
Dreams that I had so carefully carved, shatter, like glass,
And the shards pierce through both our hearts.
I fail to put the pieces back together, even though I try
With every blink of your hurtful eyes.
I find myself stern of “I do”
But so unsure, this time, of you
that I die a little when you smile
between the blinks of your bloodshot eyes.
This path that lay before us a while ago
Beckoning us towards a blissful life
Has flooded with blood of a tender love
In the blink of my blinded eyes.
