The Gaze


Those gloomy and moist eyes

The moment, held for a long time.


A face through a rain drenched window

One good wipe, you feel you know.


Walking some distance

Winding my way down to the road,


Looking back and held the gaze

This time for an unusual longer time.


Wasn’t ask for anything in a jiffy

It was now cold and hard look.


A little prayer would suffice

Or was it not making sense?


Still brought tears to my eyes

My own sadness- doesn’t know.


Chaos, suffering, pain
