Perfectly Imperfect

Black or brown, it doesn’t matter, they were beautiful. I couldn’t make out the colour of her eyes but I know they were stunning, mesmerising, for sure, as I am still lost in that glimpse of her gaze. They seemed innocent, yet they had a story. What did they want to say? What was she hiding?

Her eyes were big, bold and yet they seemed shy and diffident. What was wrong? I did not know, though I wanted to. She had looked at me with those mysterious eyes and had left me dazed. The look was striking with the arched eyebrows raised high above on her forehead. Was she confused or rather questioning?

I am pretty sure she could have scared off anyone with those deep eyes; well she could have startled herself too with those meaningful eyes.

They weren’t perfect, neither the eyes nor the eyebrows but they were beautiful to me, perfectly imperfect, just for me.

PS: A fiction.

  1. Eyes of course can say a million things just with a few blinks couldn’t it. Love the mysterious vibe you brought out throughout the post and you’ve nailed the conclusion in style!

  3. Wow !! that’s very beautiful dear
    Jaw dropping I would say

    Her eyes speak
    About what’s in her mind
    About the things she hides
    In the deep corners of her mind
    If you gaze deep into her eyes
    Her eyes are the starting point
    Of journey to her soul

  4. Eyes!!…they say a thousand words!! And convey multitude of emotions! Captivating always!! Nicely captured….👍 It also made me recall some wonderful lines on eyes from a song:

    Aankhein dekhin to mein dekhte reh gaya,
    Jaam do aur donon hi do aatisha!
    Aankhein ya maikade ke yeh do baab hein,
    Aankhein inko kahoon ya kahoon khawaab hein!
    Aankhein neechin huin to haya ban gayin,
    Aankhein unchi huin to dua ban gayin!
    Aankhein uth kar jhukin to ada ban gayin,
    Aankhein jhuk kar uthi to qaza ban gayin!
    Aankhein jin mein qaid aasman-o- zameen,
    Nargisi nargisi, surmayi surmayi!
    Aafreen Aafreen, Aafreen Aafreen!!

  5. You had me at “black or brown!” My husband has eyes just like that–although his eyes diverge from the rest of the story.

    It’s funny how dark colored eyes reflect more light, isn’t it?

Your perception holds importance for me.
