Your eyes reminded me of
a colorful aquarium,
like millions of aqua creatures
were swimming inside them happily,
and I always wanted to make those tiny little
pellets of love with my fingertips
to feed them,
to keep them –
happy and loved.

When your heart responded
to my emotional poems,
I often saw rainbows
forming around your eyes.
and it was the day when I started
hating them both –
Poems and Rainbows.

On that stormy night
when you made the decision
to never see me again,
I could see a thousand rainbows all around,
still not sure if they were the reflection of yours
or my own eyes.

And it felt as if
all those beautiful aqua creatures
were starving to death and crying,
it was the day when I finally fell in love
with my poems
but I couldn’t learn to love
