Blinded Vision

by Sreekanth Kopuri

This young eye

had many blank pages

waiting for

the dream-script

till the truth


a dream bigger than

the earth and death


a sea deeper enough

to drown the topless

clock towers but

while in a long

winkless wait to

reach the destination


a dark speck of

eye-quake from

the unknown

blinded the future

rupturing the vision

where the life boat

still waits.
