B - Behind Those Eyes


PC : Unsplash

Behind those eyes
Dwelled another universe 
Unlike the one outside
Wherein the chaos 
Was but endearing
Without the cacophony 
To embrace with
And where the dreams 
Came in tiptoeing freely
Playing a rhapsody 
From time to time
With desires and inhibitions 
Pirouetting away in a trance
Dissolving ultimately into
A bliss of eternity 

Behind those eyes
Dwelled another universe 
Similar to the one outside
Taking in the chaos 
Into its stride
Embracing the cacophony 
That came along with
And where the dreams 
Glinted far away wistfully
Playing a rhapsody
From time to time
With desires and inhibitions 
Pirouetting away in a trance
Dissolving ultimately into
A fiery fight for survival

That's a smart play of words, Ira. You gave the verses two different meanings with the minor tweak. Beautiful and artful poetry.
