When You Looked

When you sang

I lost my heart

When you spoke

I lost my voice

When you painted

I lost my imagination

When you looked

I stood mesmerized


Now I am deprived of my senses

as you go searching

for your next victim


Days have seen him gaze at her window

Hoping for a glimpse of her shadow

When she would peep through the veil

With a wave and a pensive smile

Nights have seen him wallow

With her photo by his side

And receiver on his pillow


One day the curtains took pity

And gave way

To reveal her photo

Partially shrouded in flowers

Silent was every visitor

Oblivious of her unspoken desire

Her soul crying for her desolate lover
