When I Stare into Her Eyes--By Partha Chatterjee--India

When I Stare into Her Eyes

Her eyes
Full to the brim
Flow murmuring
as a stream.

I stealthily
set adrift
a boat there.

Convulsed
with shyness
She
Lowers the water level
And flows knee-deep.

Leaving the boat glued
In the mud.

I, hopelessly hopeful,
Wait for the next tide. 

Partha Chatterjee lives in India with his family. Born in 1986, he graduated from Burdwan University. He loves music and poetry.
